WNWG Update at the GDB.

Tomorrow I present an update of the Worker Node Working Group at the GDB. There is now a complete plan that while complicated with updates to information providers, lcg-tags, YAIM and site configurations of YAIM it will work though add complexity. As planned small sites can ignore everything. It seems it can be deployed at its own speed and once done sites can reconfigure to multiple sub clusters in their own time. The presentation has far to much detail for a GDB audience but it's quite a narrow subject. Mostly of interest to site administrators since it is all work for them. The users just get the benefits, better allocation of jobs to suitable worker nodes.
