TSA2.5 - QA Implementation Review and Support

I sent feedback to tasks 2.2 and 2.4. I asked about needed input to 2.3,
however I have not received answer.

Plan to next week, finalize testbed setup for 2.6.

TSA2.6 - Testbeds Setup, Maintenance and Coordination

+ Status and Progress
- task 16337: resources inventory. Also CESNET (Glite) and KOSICE/NIIF (ARC) added 
resources in the testbed twiki.
We no have 50 servers.
Julich is purchaising new HW for testbeds which will be available in 2 weeks.

- Monitoring: CERN, CNAF, Juelich have nagios. External access requires registration. 
We'll provide monthly availability reports in the twiki.

- Root access to testbed resources from external sites. We discussed the issue. 
Differences among sites and many restrictions. Impossible to standardize for the milestone. 
We'll start with actual access policies.

+ Issues to Discuss
- Availability reports: target per server or average on testbed?
- Root access model. Different policy for different sites. For now we will treat cases accordingly to local policy. 
For future, we must address the issue maybe relating on ldap/voms/argus authentication/autorization 
features (which are in developement plans).
- BDII with cross middleware resources ? (glite sees ARC CE, Unicore?)
- any updates about PTB document defining list of services and platforms?

+ Steps Next Week
- Planning a SA2.6 Meeting next monday 15:00, to check status of testbed.
- task 16337- filling servers logbook.
- PT squads (Asking Florida if PT mailing lists are ready)
- TESTBED BDII configuration.
- Start working on deliverable (TOC attached)
