Edinburgh and ATLAS FCR

Edinburgh got bumped by ATLAS for failing JS for quite a while, but as their 5 jobs slots were tied up with Zeus jobs the ATLAS SAM tests couldn't run so they couldn't get back in the ATLAS BDII. Of course this meant that Steve Lloyd's jobs were aborting (no matching resources).

So, Sam has allowed the atlassgm user access to the reserved ops/dteam job slot. This will be fine as long as nothing happens to stick that job in the queue.

However, it's all getting a bit silly - more and more tweaks in the batch system to rush through the test jobs.

Of course, to some extent it's an Edinburgh problem - they are so strapped for CPU that getting anything to run through in a guaranteed time is hard.
