At a high level this feels like this should be part of scheduling.
Scheduling might include resources you want right now, but it could
include resources you want in the future. It also makes sense for
scheduling to include deadlines, so that resources are reclaimed when
they expire. Especially given quota implications of asking for resources
now vs. resources that a user has reserved in the future. What happens
when a user has used all their quota in the present, and a future
reservation comes up for access?

Scheduling today is under compute. The proposal to pull Gantt out still
leaves it in the compute program. So I would naturally assume this
should live under compute. I could understand that if this & Gantt
emerged together and wanted to create a "Resource Allocation" program,
that might make sense. But I think that's way down the road.

However, that's just a quick look at this. I think it will be an
interesting discussion in how this effort moves forward.
