Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Fairshare dynamic priority to use job count instead of job slots
The fairshare formula uses job_slots with RUN_JOB_FACTOR. Looking to have a formula that uses a job_count that represents only the number of jobs (excluding the slots or tasks requested per job).
A scenario for this is when a queue is set up to ...
Currently, a bmod is a very expensive activity in LSF, but running a bmod to simply change a jobs priority, should be a low impact changes. What we would request is to have the bmod that simply does an '-sp' to be handled in a way that has the lea...
Normalize and Remove SELECT "OR" clause in Effective Reservation Requirements
When a job that is pending for a -R "select[this || that]" should be normalized to either select[this] or select[that] upon dispatch so that the user can tell what set of requirements were used to dispatch the job, but this is not currently the be...
