  • Writing about Sites for OSG'
    here are a couple of paragraph. I can change that if you give me some feedback:
    OSG and its Integration and Sites Coordination activities help improve the quality of grid software
    releases prior to deployment on the OSG and help sites deploy and operate OSG services thereby
    achieving greater success in production. More than 90% of the sites (95% as of 1/18/2011) uses OSG
    1.2, the latest production version.
    Novel site administrators benefit greatly from entering in an active and generous community: they
    received training and regular support that can help them starting a grid site from the ground up and
    can exchange ideas with a lot of knowledgeable colleagues. More than once new members coming to OSG
    hands-on workshops have been surprised by the many experts eager to help.
    Also experienced site administrators get advantage from workshops, meetings and being part of the OSG
    community: they can be in touch with software experts and developers and and can "compare notes".
    And networking opportunities can end up helping also in unexpected ways like in hardware procurements.
    More than one site administrator thanked OSG for its "tutoring" approach that made it possible for
    them to understand distributed computing, get started and become independent.
    Site Coordination and meetings minutes (include also hands-on sessions at all hands meeting and site
    administrators workshops):

      Hi Gabriele,                                                                                              
      is is difficult to come out with the best success story.                                                  
      Preventive work (testing, improving configuration) is silent: things are                                  
      OK if you don't hear about sites and the fact that production has been                                    
      running pretty smoothly and we could focus on smaller sites and new VOs is                                
      a good sign.                                                                                              
      Campfire has a lot of little stories improving existing sites or helping                                  
      new ones. It has been rewarding to feel the enthusiasm of our friends                                     
      in South America stating thir Grid or the gratitude of colleagues with                                    
      one less problem.
