37Last friday we posted a document called
39"Preliminary Review of the GENIAPI as Control Framework
40Interoperability Architecture and TIED Federation Plug-In Candidate"
42to the GENI wiki at
44and linked from http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/TIED
46This is TIED milestone S2.d "Preliminary design document for
47Unified/SFA (GENIAPI) plugin"
49We're sorry that this is a little bit late (it was due August 1).
50Quite a lot of the analysis in this document is based on GENIAPI and
51SFA2 material that was first available at GEC8 and on conversations
52with several folks there and afterword. It took us a bit of time to
53synthesize all of that into one place..
55We think this document raises some interesting issues about the
56current state of GENIAPI evolution, and points out at least one
57possible confusion that may exist across different people's views of
58that work and the SFA. Hopefully, it also describes some useful next
59steps to encourage interoperability.  We're going to try to kick off
60some discussion of all this in the control framework WG in the near
61future.  As a first step, we've sent a direct heads-up about the
62document to involved BBN folks - Aaron Helsinger, Tom Mitchell, and
63Aaron Falk - to solicit comments. We'll fire off a note to the WG
64list in the next couple of days.
