That sort of discussion is a ways out I think, but its probably
appropriate as a vision statement in your SIGs page.

An actual scheduler service that runs on Fedora project
infrastructure... yes I would support branding it as a Fedora project.
Since I've no idea what is needed to actual host a scheduler, you'll
have to have a discussion with infrastructure concerning required
resources and then bring a summary of that discussion back to fab.
I'd want to know what the resource burn for a scheduler is expected to
be.  If we are doing a scientific task initially, do we have to commit
to storing a large data or results set on Fedora infrastructure as
well as the scheduler?
