Hi Dan,
Could we please keep the DDF director in the actor tree.  My workflow is
held together with duct tape and chicken wire and this is the one small
piece that holds it together.  Norbert recommended that we use this
director and I don't think that there is any other way to implement what
we are trying to do without it.  I'm not altogether sure how it works so
any documentation that could be provided in the future on the DDF
Director would be really helpful!!

Hi All,

    Currently, Kepler (CVS Head) includes a DDF director. This director
is not one of the 4 documented in any of the documentation prepared to
date. Since we are trying to get an rc1 release we have the question of

1) Trying to add documentation in the next few days. This would probably
require Kirsten to coordinate with Norbert who is the only one with
experience using the DDF director in Kepler (and apparently has some
example workflow)

or 2) removing the DDF director from the actor tree. This would remove
confusion among new user, but leaving it in the compiled code would mean
that workflows using DDF would still run and the actor could be
instantiated and added to new workflow by anyone knowing about it. It
could then be added to the tree when documentation was completed (1.0 ?)

Can we do 1)? or should we go with 2) for rc1?
