OGF Public Comments

Public comments are a very important part of the OGF document approval process.  Through public comments, documents are given scrutiny by people with a wide range of expertise and interests. Ideally, a OGF document will be self-contained, relying only on the other documents and standards it cites to be clear and useful.  Public comments of any type are welcomed, from small editorial comments to broader comments about the scope or merit of the proposed document.  The simple act of reading a document and providing a public comment that you read it and found it suitable for publication is very useful, and provides valuable feedback to the document authors.

Thank you for making public comments on this document!

The following entry is missing:

"Volunteer computing" is a form of desktop grid computing in which computing is done on personal computers volunteered by their owners. This differs from institutional desktop grid computing because the computing resources are a) unaccountable and untrusted, b) sporadically connected, c) often behind NATs, firewalls, or HTTP proxies, and d) highly diverse in terms of hardware and software.
