     52== Session Summary ==
     53At the Miscellaneous Developer Topics Session, we heard from Aaron
     54Helsinger and Tom Mitchell on the status of several efforts, and then
     55had an open discussion on things that tool developers would like to
     56see from aggregates and clearinghouses.
     58Aaron presented the status of the Aggregate Manager API v3 implementation, with a plea for more progress from aggregate developers, particularly to support Update(). He also presented the status of RSpecs and Omni.
     60Tom Mitchell discussed how to integrate tools into the larger GENI infrastructure, particularly through the use of OpenID for Single Sign On.
     62Marshall Brinn introduced the question of what support tool developers would
     63like from aggregates and clearinghouses in order to support GENI
     64experimenters. We then had an open discussion, where several requests
     65and suggestions were made.
     67In general, tools would like a way to know when something changes in a
     68slice - the slivers in the slice, expiration times, etc. A callback
     69function was suggested instead of requiring polling. Alternatively,
     70GENI could identify the authoritative source(s) of all kinds of
     71information and ensure those sources have API methods for querying
     74Other requests included:
     75 - Common libraries, particularly for handling authentication and authorization in GENI
     76 - Standards among tools, for things like how long to cache state
     77 - Improved documentation
