Host reservation system designed for clusters

'busynode' is a simple host reservation system, primarily designed for cluster installations. It lets users communicate with others on what hosts they currently use, or plan to use in the near future. Reservation information is stored as text files on a shared filesystem (such as an NFS mount). When executed without any options, busynode behaves as an enhanced ruptime tool.
