Apart from the typo, I thought it was necessary for the VOTE thread to
contain the full text of the proposal.

This has been the case for (almost) all previous acceptance votes.

I assume the text is required so the mail archives have a full record
of what was actually voted on.

The Wiki page might subsequently change or be deleted.

Abstract

Taverna is an open source and domain-independent suite of tools used to
design and execute data-driven workflows.

Proposal

The Taverna suite includes:

* Taverna Workbench, a desktop application written in Java for graphically
  composing, editing and executing workflows composed of distributed Web
  services and local tools

* Taverna Command Line Tool, which allows execution of workflows from a 
command line


* Taverna Server, which provides a REST and SOAP API for executing workflows

* Taverna Player, a Web interface the Taverna Server written in Ruby
  towards, providing a high-level view of workflow executions and their
  results and allowing further integrations with other Ruby on Rails
  applications

Taverna allows browsing through and combining different service types in
workflows, allowing them to integrate steps of arbitrary REST and SOAP Web
services with command line tools (local and via SSH), scripts (Beanshell,
R, Jython), and finally to visualize the results.

The goal of the Taverna suite is to help researchers to access distributed
datasets and processing capabilities by the construction of (data)
pipelines, and also to simplify the execution of these pipelines in various
environments.

The Taverna suite of products is already successful and in wide use across
different domains. The software is currently licensed as LGPL 2.1, with
copyright owned by the University of Manchester. External contributors have
all signed Apache-like CLAs.

Background

Taverna workflows coordinate inputs and outputs between computational
processes and Web services. The workflow is designed in a graphical
interface which shows the workflow as a series of boxes connected with
arrows representing processes (i.e. executable services) and their data
connections. Different processes in a workflow can be command line tools,
REST and WSDL Web services; which are used for combining steps such as data
acquisition, filtering, cleaning, integrating, analysis and
visualization. Taverna calls these processes services, as they generally
are provided by remote (third-party) servers.These kind of computational
workflows, also known as pipelines or dataflows, focus on the movement of
data rather than the execution order of the underlying processes. Features
such as implicit iterations (where an input list of values causes multiple
process executions) and parallel invocations (independent processes are
executed as soon as their data is available) are intrinsic to a dataflow
system, not requiring any particular constructs by the workflow designer.As
a visual programming environment, workflows aids collaboration and reuse of
workflows. At the highest level, a workflow represents the conceptual level
of an analysis, allowing understanding, discussion and communication of the
overall analysis protocol. More detail can be revealed and modified for
individual steps. At the individual process level, the workflow defines
execution specifics such as operations, parameters and command line
tools.Sharing of the workflow definitions allows re-use and re-purposing of
the computational analysis. During workflow execution, provenance can be
collected from every step, allowing deep inspection of intermediate values
for the purpose of debugging and validation.

Rationale

There is a strong need to lower the barrier of entry to datasets and
computational resources widely available on the Internet, to increase their
use by researchers who understand the computational steps needed to produce
their results, but who are not necessarily expert programmers. Taverna has
already shown its success and popularity in a wide range of scientific
disciplines.

Initial Goals

Transition mailing lists to Apache (keep existing subscribers, but 
invite more)
