Using DocDB
DocDB is the central document repository for documents relating to the OSG. DocDB has versioning as well as different security levels for private documents. The types of documents that should be included are blueprint documents, presentations given at a conference or collaboration meeting or papers published in a journal, among others. Items that may not be appropriate for DocDB are "working documents," (i.e., weekly technical activity meeting minutes, operations reports, etc...) generally, the items that are created and maintained in the "OSG At Work" Twiki.

Those who wish to post or update documents in DocDB must have a valid DOEgrids or Fermilab KCA certificate.
Note: Certificate users will need to apply for access the first time they access DocDB with their certificate.
