[slurm-users] slurm.conf syntax checker?

Sadly no.  There is a feature request for one though: 

What we've done in the meantime is put together a gitlab runner which 
basically starts up a mini instance of the scheduler and runs slurmctld 
on the slurm.conf we want to put in place.  We then have it reject any 
changes that cause failure.  It's not perfect but it works.  A real 
syntax checker would be better.
