Hi Marco,

I am not sure about cog-setup, but I would skip that and proceed to the 
examples, after putting bin/ in your path and making sure that you have 
CA certificates so you can make a proxy (I assume you get all this from 
your OSG environment).

(I assume that was removed on purpose and the quickstart was not updated 
to reflect it. We need to fix that).

Note that Swift's bin/ provides some tools that are also in OSG bin dirs.

And you should direct all your questions to this list, swift-user, 
because that's where the developers listen for users who need help.

To test if its working, do the first example in the Swift tutorial:


Then move on to the Swift tutorial for the OSG Grid School, I think, 
would be the best approach.
