All, first of all: Thanks for taking the time for the reviews that I read with much interest.

I uploaded another version [1] of this non-DOW document on the wiki for a more thorough discussion at the PEB F2F (document audience, scope, content, etc.) in order to have a better common understanding towards the creation of the EMI-2 and EMI-3 plans that will be much more complex.

In the meanwhile, I took the detailed review comments of Francesco, AlbertoA and Jozef into account and responded on the wiki to each of your points. Please have a look.

After a short e-mail discussion with thanks to Francesco I have added some details in the implementation sections of the document which I guess seems to be common practice in gLite developments: You describe how to implement it exactly - not just the 'what'.

Just for your understanding of my initial difficulties with this then: While I see some merit in providing such low-level details in technical publications, I have to state that exactly this would be not the UNICORE way of doing it in a development plan.

Having such a low-level technical plan that "tells the developers how to do it" is not common practice in the UNICORE community. It seems like a technical paper writing (before the technology is implemented) by some managerial person that overlooks the developments and not codes himself...?!

One example: I would be the very last one to tell Bernd or Björn (UNICORE developers) in a plan "how" to implement things - I might tell "what" to do and which results are expected (previous development plan) and then the developer, of course, have the best knowledge "how" to implement it and which components/external packages might be needed, problems that might come up (duplicate port usage, backwards compatibility questions, production impact, etc.), etc.

However, this document exercise was perhaps another way of understanding our different communities and common practice a bit better. So I'm looking forward to the next versions as my feedback gets more concrete now.

Finally, in understanding the different histories of us a little bit better, I'm very open to go even more into details in this EMI-1 plan and the upcoming EMI-2, EMI-3 plans if the reviewers think that is useful.

I even like to write about it and would offer an architecture diagram per component to understand the technical solution in more detail, so no problem if it is this level of detail you would like to see to get the document in a better shape and accepted.

Of course, any other fruitful comment would be welcome too.

Thanks, Morris
