I'm trying to update slurm to the latest stable version 18.08.5-2. Our 
cluster uses CentOS 6.8 and updating it tricky because of Lustre support.
According to https://slurm.schedmd.com/platforms.html, CentOS 6 is still 

However, `yum-builddep slurm-18.08.5-2/slurm.spec` fails, because 
`slurm.spec` contains `BuildRequires: systemd` which is not available on 
CentOS 6 (at least on my 6.8 apparently).

Does slurm 18.08 work on mode recent versions of CentOS 6? Am I missing 
something, or is the platforms page out of date?
