trouble tickets, grid forum flavor

[The Grid Forum meeting is happening as we speak.   I'm not at it.]

I suspect that the basic trouble ticket practices can be the same for access
trouble as for any other bug.  So maybe we can stick to inventing where it
comes to describing the access problem and criteria for a non-problem, and
do what everyone else does as far as the basic tracking-support information.

The Grid Forum has no exclusive lock on insight in this area.  However for our
purposes their deliberation has some positive points in its favor.   They are
trying to consense on a model they all can use.  They are considering this
question now, with the Web as a tool clearly established.   Their
discussion is
a world wide dialog.  They have real helpdesk staff involved in the
and they are carrying out their conversations in public.
