This is good news. On the fedora-devel list Debarshi pointed out to
BOINC as well. If there was one single reason this is interesting for me
is that there has for long been a sort of "underground" Fedora consumers
cult doing work around Bioinformatics, Gene Sequencing and the like in
India. The research work might not be in the open, but there is a ready
community waiting to be tapped

You'd probably be interested to know that the client side (execute node)
of Condor can use a BOINC client to process data when there is nothing
else to run (jobs).

Best,
