Purpose of the Group ➲ Lot's of people using SRB in many different projects. ➲ Lot's of people hitting the similar problems and arriving at similar solutions. ➲ Lot's of people interested in iRODS. ➲ Wouldn't it be great if we could share experience and know what other people are doing.
Purpose of the Group ➲ To share knowledge: Ideas, Experience, problems, projects - through mailing list and wiki pages. ➲ To share common tools: Ideally through something like gforge or possibly trac. ➲ Emphasis of the group is on cooperation not dictation. ➲ Emphasis of the group is to reduce duplication without increasing workload.
