Oops, Andrea noticed that document!... :-) And she even sent talked about it to WSDM!... :-) Oh, no!... ;-) (And I didn't even start writing about models yet... :-) Yes, we in CMM-WG are writing a simple text on management in OGSA, with the main objective of giving a framework over everybody can discuss management in the OGSA structure (which has many levels, many vague terms like "resource managers", which made some of the discussions a bit confusing). It's still a *very* preliminary version, which might be discussed on the OGSA face-to-face later this week. By the way, one of the action items written in the text is to use the WSDM nomenclature -- I didn't do it yet just for lack of time. I'll start working on that soon. For those curious, the latest version of the text is here (Andrea: did you read version 1? The link below has version 2, which changed some of the basic definitions). http://www-unix.gridforum.org/mail_archive/ogsa-wg/msg00605.html I'm not giving names to the functionality, but the stuff on the Platform services level is mostly WSDM. That's all for now (the WSDM F2F is starting). Regards, Fred Maciel.
