    v1 v1  
     1= GIR 2.1 Information for Fedd 3.00 =
     2
     3Most of the information about fedd is available from its [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net website].  The breakdown below, taken from Section 2.1 of the [wiki:GIR2.1Guidelines GIR 2.1 Guidelines] mostly points users to the various subsections of that site where the relevent information is located.
     4
     5 '''Scope'''::
     6   [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki fedd] allows users to create experiments spanning multiple independently administered resource pools with different access control representations and allocation interfaces, including [http://www.protogeni.net/trac/protogeni/wiki ProtoGENI v1].
     7
     8 '''Dependencies'''::
     9   The full dependencies are enumerated in the [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddDownload#DownloadingandInstallingthetarfile instructions for downloading and installing fedd].  Any recent unix environment (we recommend [http://www.freebsd.org FreeBSD]) that runs [http://python.org/ python] version 2.4 or later will work.  The following python packages are also required:
     10   * ZSI version 2.0 or greater
     11   * m2crypto version 0.18 or greater (2.0 or greater preferred)
     12   * pyasn1 version 0.0.9 or greater (if m2crypto is 0.18)
     13
     14   The instructions mention a mySQL installation, but this is only necessary for [http://www.emulab.net Emulab] plug-ins.  In particular, all GENI and ProtoGENI functionality is available without it.
     15
     16 '''Access'''::
     17   The [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddDownload#DownloadingandInstallingthetarfile fedd download page] includes links to the current software and the subversion trees for [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/browser/fedd fedd] and its [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/browser/wsdl web-services interfaces] are readable by all.  Current version is 3.00 and the WSDL is included in the tarfiles.
     18
     19 '''Prerequisites'''::
     20   For fedd, these are identical to '''Dependencies''' above.
     21
     22 '''Software Location'''::
     23   See '''Access'''.
     24
     25 '''Build Instructions'''::
     26   Fedd is largely interpreted, but when creating the system from the [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/browser/fedd fedd] svn repository, one does have to {{{make all}}} to generate web services code.  Similarly one can {{{make dist}}} to make a distribution tarfile.  That operation is described in the [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddDownload#Subversionaccess download and installation document]
     27
     28 '''Installation Instructions'''::
     29   Detailed instructions are at [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddDownload the fedd website installation section].
     30
     31 '''Upgrade Instrcutions'''::
     32   Install a more recent version using the instructions above.  No provision exists for dynamic updates using the software itself, though new plug-ins can be added at any time, as documented in the [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddPluggingIn plug-in specification].
     33
     34 '''Configuration Instructions'''::
     35   Detailed instructions are at [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddConfig the fedd website configuration section].
     36
     37 '''Runtime Instructions'''::
     38   Detailed instructions are at [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddCommands#CommandLine the fedd website operation section].
     39
     40 '''Terminology'''::
     41   Fedd uses a fairly rich model and vocabulary.  The website includes [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddAbout a section] devoted to getting users acquainted with both.
     42
     43 '''Versioning'''::
     44   This described fedd version 3.00, wsdl version 3.00.  These versions are available from svn for [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/browser/fedd/branches/version-3.00 fedd 3.0] and [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/browser/wsdl/branches/version-3.00 wsdl 3.0]
