Subject Re: PHP Client Hackathon

Hi Dave,

This is great feedback. We should consider having the PHP client directly worked from Airavata
GIT. We need to update website documentation to include how to contribute instructions. The
old instructions are svn based and now obsolete. 

Please see below for more comments:

It might be nice to provide a helper function like getExperimentStatusString.

Agreed. Most of Airavata developers are not good at PHP and will appreciate your contributions
of these helper functions.

If not, then they should both end in “Status”.

This is embarrassing to have typos in the API’s. I am the creator of these and will fix

Thanks for these notes, very useful summary,
