[farmshare-discuss] Barley sharing algorithm?

Can someone explain the algorithm the Barley's used to allocate
slots to users? Currently, there are 444 jobs running. 413
jobs belong to the user ocarja, including the most recently 
launched jobs. Several other users have jobs that have been
queued for more than a day (e.g. blhuynh, rpinho, tflanzer)

Given that ocarja's jobs are consuming a large fraction for
the CPUs and that there are other users waiting for a significant
time, when a slot becomes available, why isn't a different user's 
job started?

Thank you,
