The goal of the Gratia project review is to understand and input to revised high-level and, where possible, more detailed requirements, as well as to the management and planning for the Gratia project over the next 5 years.
This input will be used for planning ongoing development and maintenance, as well as  evolution of the roadmap.
The Gratia Project designs and deploys robust, scalable, trustable and dependable grid accounting, publishes an interface to the services and provides a reference implementation.
There is a published paper summarizing the services.
The following requirements documents are available:
2011 FermiCloud accounting.
2009 Revised Storage Accounting Requirements. Comparison of Gratia to Fermilab CD Requirements .
2008 Requirements from OSG S/w Tools Group. General Requirements.
2006 Defined Scope for Accounting Project

Charge:

Reviewers are asked to consider the 1-5 year time frame for the Gratia project to:

¨Understand and comment on the scope, status and plans.
¨Comment on the priorities and appropriateness of the pending requests, requirements and planned evolutions.
¨Offer advice and guidance to the management and sponsors of the project on their continued support.
¨Recommend whether the current approach, and technologies, are  still warranted.
¨Advise whether and/or when the project should look into whether there exists any new implementations out that we could adopt and maintain effectively (with fewer resources in the longer term).
¨Suggest areas of investigation and work that would enhance the value of the project.
