Welcome to the GENI Wiki

This is the GENI working group wiki. It is intended to be a living repository for information relating to the GENI design and GPO-led Design Process. The structure, governance, and charters for GENI working groups can be found here.

GENI Speaking Engagements

Please enter information about any [GeniTalks GENI talks] you give that might be of interest to the group.

Working Group Pages

Each GENI working group has it's own wiki home page.

SPIRAL 1 Integration Information

GENI projects post information on what they are doing for Spiral 1 here, as does the GPO. These pages include project technical information, schedules and milestones, and information from related projects not funded by GENI. Keeping these pages current helps make planning, participating, and integrating easier for the GENI community.


GPO Documents: The GPO publishes system engineering and integration documents specifying the GENI design, integration, and operations here.

Working Group Documents: GENI working groups develop and publish documents. Unless otherwise noted, these documents represent the consensus of the publishing working group. Working drafts can be found on the individual working group wiki pages.

Contributed Documents: Documents contributed by members of the GENI community. May come from D&P projects. Listing is found here.

Older Documents: Pre-working group design documents (from 2005-2007) can be found here.

Mailing Lists

GENI Announce is a moderated list carrying important announcements about upcoming meetings, solicitations, and other useful information for the developer community.

GENI Discuss is an open list for general community discussion.

dev is an open list for GENI prototype developers.

See working group pages for information on working group mailing lists.

GENI Wiki Information

Getting Started: See Getting Started for information on how to post and site-wide conventions.

Admin: Need help? Contact Operations

Wiki Docs: GENI is using the TRAC wiki and issue tracking software package. For help with the Trac software, including pages that explain how to format wiki text and create new pages, TracGuide is a good place to start. Not all the TRAC features are currently in use for GENI (for example there are no tickets), but we expect GENI will eventually use them all. Please contact Operations for help, changes, or problems with this site.

Permissions: You must log in to the project wiki before you can edit any page. See Getting Started for how to get a login. The admins can make pages read-only, editable by only them; any non-read-only page is editable by any logged-in user. This page (WikiStart) is a read-only page, but most of the rest of the wiki is read/write. Contact a GPO member or Operations if you want to make changes to this page. All GENI working groups share a single wiki. (If it becomes a problem we may go to something with richer control.)

Index: For a complete list of local wiki pages, see TitleIndex.
