Hello Francois,

we currently use the sceduler for running tests but there is also a cli
testrunner which is important for the people who integrate caretaker
with nagios.

Solving the problem by preventing parallel job execution seems a good
way for me. I will think about how we can acieve this in the cli-cronjob.

Supressing parallel execution will have much less side effects than
storing an unneeded amount of equal results. So you made a good point.

Regards, Martin
