Executive Summary: A researcher, application developer, science gateway developer, or service provider (aka “repository curator”) needs to create or modify the contents of a repository that will be accessed on many resources. The repository is hosted by a service provider. Repository contents may include: installed applications, container images, application configuration files, data files.
This would be an entirely new capability for XSEDE, so the proposal is to go through the full XSEDE "new capability" process, beginning with the development of a design document, formal review for design & security issues, and development of any new documentation and support processes necessary to deliver the capability. The effort estimate is 12 person-weeks of effort, but until a design is finalized, this is just a rough estimate based on what we know today. As we learn more about the details of the capability, we will update the estimates in specific Jira activities.
