I agree with Paul that the OGF Glue WG should take care of the v1.3 of 
glue as well, at least on the collecting/maintaining the documentation 

I suggest that once we pushed the v2.0 into public comment we dedicate 
some time cleaning up the v1.3 documentation and moving everything to 
the gridforge.

I hope by that time gridforge will recover.

agree, the above bits & pieces are essential information.
btw, one of the main problem with glue 1.x was that the ldap part never 
really defined the DIT, that was only "encoded in implementations".

In 2.0 we try to avoid it and that is why we'll have the proper data 
model rendering documents for xml, ldap, relational db.
