SA1.4 Central tools

SA1.5 Accounting

  • Started CAR discussion to check on whether the discussion had converged. Agreed with A Guarise that we could work with the existing document but this stimulated a new discussion within EMI and there has been another iteration. Pressure from Unicore to adopt RFC2253 instead of the X500 naming of DNs.
  • Ready to move Italy, Nordugrid and SWITCH to the new SSM publishing. Delayed a week due to staff absences. MAPPER records tested OK. Need agreement on how to handle sites publishing with both QCG and EMI.
