EcoGrid enthusiasts,

A core group working on the EcoGrid held a meeting in Seattle to work 
out some of the initial design and strategy for EcoGrid implementation. 
  Participants in the meeting were:

   Arcot Rajasekar
   Matt Jones
   Dave Vieglais
   Peter McCartney
   James Brunt (via video conference)

The notes from the meeting are in the CVS repository under 

The goal that we set for ourselves was to produce a minimal but 
functional EcoGrid by June 1, 2003 that allowed query and read 
operations on Metacat, DiGIR, SRB, and Xanthoria nodes.  Towards that 
end, we established a list of tasks (see the meeting notes) which I have 
digested into Bugzilla. See:

Here's a summary of the deadlines we are trying to meet, with those 
people who volunteered to take a lead on them:

April 4
