Plans for Queue
Dear GATK Team,
I am wondering about future plans for the Queue framework. I find it a useful framework to write and run pipelines in computing clusters. However, I found myself often wanting to use Queue in pipelines without any GATK walkers at all. Are there any plans in the future to release Queue as its own, GATK-independent package?
I know that internally there are some shared classes (e.g. the command line parser), and refactoring them so that Queue can be GATK-free may require a little more work. But I'm just interested to know if there are already plans to do this (or perhaps even already ongoing).
