Thanks Andre - I'll get around at some stage to supply some feedback to the GLUE WG, but EU deliverables take precedence for the moment ;-)
I'd also agree on your point of requiring some means of resource description.

Hi Sam, Andrew,

as Alexander and Alexis in the other branch of this thread
(about scheduling), I just wanted to make sure that other
OGF groups and standards get considered, and involved, *when
appropriate*.  So I'm happy to hear that people have
considered to use GLUE, and that GLUE MAY be usable as
alternative representation, etc.

Andrew, would you be able to feed back to the GLUE WG where
you considered the standarde to fall short of your
requirements?  They might be interested to learn about that.

I am actually not familiar enough with the topic to really
have an educated opinion.  As an observer, it seems that the
OCCI will need to touch resource description at some point
or the other, to specify requirements to a VM for example,
and GLUE seems to aim at that type of use case.  Not sure if
any from the GLUE people are listening here.  If not, it
might be worthewhile to get their feedback at next OGF, by
going to their session...

Cheers, Andre.
