[Fedora-legal-list] OpenPBS license



The license for TORQUE is under the OpenPBS license and isn't in the Fedora list of approved licenses, so I am sending it to you for review.  The license text is attached.

Note that only points 3-6 must be met as the others have expired in 2001.

points 3 and 4 are met because none required notices have been removed.

point 5 is met by, at least, the Addendum at the bottom of the file.
