You have misunderstood this setting - the owner referred to is the
owner of the job - this is automatically set to be the same as the
username of the user who submitted it.

Thus to allow any one's jobs to run just set START = True

No need for this given that suspend always evaluates to false but ok
to indicate intent.

also fine

Not that good an idea - it means that jobs which get preempted (due to
say user priority / job rank etc.) get an infinite amount of time till
they are forcibly killed if they do not respond to the vacation

If none of the jobs which are submitted are capable of any form of
checkpointing you may as well just set this to True and save yourself
some wasted cycles.
