The aim of this page is tracking the progressive decommissioning of SL5 from sites.

UMD is getting ready to support CentOS7. Supporting a new platform will require to decommission a previously support O.S. to make available new resources. EGI Operations will like to decommission Scientific Linux 5.

Please start tracking which sites are still using SL5 services: how many services, and for each service if still needed on SL5, if upgrades on SL5 services are expected). Also interesting to understand who is using Debian.

From September 2015 on, UMD3 will support only security fixes for SL5. Security updates will be available until March 2016.

All SL5 services must be decommissioned by April 2016. On February probes will start warning about SL5 services to be decommissioned.
