I got the email below telling me that my cron job running as william-avery-bot had throw
an error, and I noticed that the Grid job that it kicks off hasn't run since.
I tried deleting the job using the instructions at
but it appeared "stuck".
I have "force deleted" your job using my Toolforge admin rights.
$ sudo qdel -f 9999749
root forced the deletion of job 9999749
The Toolforge grid engine had numerous problems yesterday which led to
the scheduler losing track of the state of many jobs. Brooke did
several rounds of looking for these and cleaning the queue state, but
obviously yours was not cleaned up in that process. Thank you for your
report, and I hope you can get your tool back into its proper working
