A Critical bug which causes file loss.has been discovered on the DPM dmlite-shell drain command released in DPM 1.8.10. One site in production has been affected. We have contacted the site admins trough the dpm-users-forum mailing list, maybe we should also send an EGI broadcast?

Preview Repository

on Feb 23rd 2016 it was released Preview Repository 1.0.0 https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/Preview_Repository

  • The aim of Preview is making available in a single point the updates of the middleware products as soon as they are released by the product teams
  • The first Preview release is a mirror of the EMI3 repository, containing the Update 29 (11.11.2015)
  • Updates released on a monthly basis
  • The first update should contain the latest STORM and VOMS updates (if no other products released anything)
  • however, the EGI recommendation is using the UMD repositories because they contain software verified through the quality assurance process of UMD.



Next meeting: March 21th, 2016
