Tried some more complicated things in PAN today in the process of trying to rationalize the templates for FTS service. In particular conditionals and nested nlists are quite cool. What I was pleased to find out was that having come up with a plan of sensible way to handle multiple sub-clusters and nodetypes I looked for some examples to build up my idea. It looks like the CASTOR team is doing exactly the same thing. The CASTOR templates look to be in a much better state than some of the other ones.
I have been given the task of chairing and planning the tutorial portion for the LCG workshop in January at CERN. In fact this looks to be good thing to do, there are several good ideas and plans that have been given to me or I can think off. There are even some volunteers to give presentations which is just great.
