The python script voms2gacl can be used for creating .gacl files by a by contacting a VOMS server and creating a .gacl with the members of VOMS group or Role. It is especially useful for restricting access from non-voms enabled clients to .gacl enabled services.

The obvious use case is for adding .gacl files to gridsite enabled webserver that you wish to restrict page views with a web browser to members of VO.
