Subject Re: Airavata GSoC 2013 Master Project

Hi All,

Also please do not get too carries away with workflow description. Airavata's key goal is
to provide abstraction over distributed computing applications.  The decisions on what application
description should look like should be based on if it can cover all the intended use cases.
The Open Grid Forum's JSDL's specification will be a good reference for skimming through -

concrete GSoC projects and appropriate JIRA's. We have an opportunity to have multiple projects,

done - [2]. Please do not get overwhelmed by the sheer of changes, at the same time, it will
be time consuming and also will require co-ordination with the community and other students.
So please read [1] and make sure it matches your interest.

I will keep expanding this wiki as we get the questions. We are roughly 2 weeks away from
the proposal deadlines, so please hurry and understand the problem to tackle well. Then lets
collectively identify the project which is "doable" within next 3 months and how we can break
it down. If this is sounding too onerous for a GSoC project, I frankly suggest to look at
other projects which might fit your time availability and get the project. Here we would like
to use the mentor energy to accomplish tasks which can directly get into the main code base,
write papers, see the projects in production and so on. The rewards will be certainly better
than an average project, but the challenge and effort will be demanding.

others on the Airavata PMC will be as well.
