News

  • EGI repositories handover in January 2021: provider moving from IASA to IBERGRID.
    • The handover will be a complex operation due to the complexity of the repository workflows and technologies adopted. Handover preparation started with a regular meeting between IASA and IBERGRID and agreement said handover will occur in the first half of December 2020 in order to avoid the problematic end of year holiday.
    • Last released planned for November 2020.
    • During 2021 repositories will undergo a series of improvements, frontend and backend and a complete review of the procedures and workflows following a CI/CD approach.

  • UMD 4.12.0 regular release scheduled for September: https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/UMD_Release_Schedule -> RC running integration tests
  • UMD 5 dry run planned for, get the process ready for end of October
  • dedicated update for VOMS on UMD4/CentOS7 as soon as it's released
  • dedicated update for StoRM+BDII on UMD4/C7+SL6 before repo migration

APEL

Indigo-DataCloud

dCache

DPM/Dynafed/LFC

New version of DPM (1.13.2) available in EPEL

http://lcgdm.web.cern.ch/dmlitedpm-1132-released-epel

Data management clients

gfal2 2.17.0 pushed to EPEL

http://dmc.web.cern.ch/release/gfal2-2.17.0

FTS

New Major version of SOCI in EPEL7-testing (4.0.0). FTS rebuild needed, we are discussing with the maintainer about issues that we found.

We would need to release a new FTS build for C7 when SOCI 4 will be pushed to EPEL stable.

ARC

6.8.1 is out in the Nordugrid repo. Not yet in EPEL stable.

Sites with nordugrid-arc-plugins-xrootd must to install do --enable-repoepel-testing as unfortunately xrootd 5 is not yet in epel stable.

CREAM

QCG

Globus

xrootd

Xrootd 5 has been released.

Updates for EPEL 7 and EPEL 8 are available in EPEL testing repos. These updates have the automatic push to stable after 14 days turned off.

Major changes:

  • The old client library libXrdClient has been dropped (replacement: libXrdCl).

Minor changes:

  • The XrdSysDNS class is removed (replacement: XrdNetAddr)
  • XrdPosixXrootd::setDebug() and some other deprecated methods in that class have been dropped.

For EPEL 7 there is an xrootd-compat package providing the old xrootd 4 libraries. It is parallel installable since the sonames have changed. The compat package does not provide any devel subpackages.

It is expected that the current xrootd 5.0.1 build in these updates will be replaced by a build of xrootd 5.0.2 before the updates are pushed to EPEL stable.

Compatibility testing with DPM/dmlite is ongoing. Some configuration compatibility glitches found will be addressed in xrootd 5.0.2.

No update to xrootd 5 is planned for EPEL 6. There is a new xrootd 4.12.4 available in EPEL testing for EPEL 6 though:

AOB

ARC finds it problematic that the ARC released in UMD is always so far behind the current newest release. We are considering to stop providing ARC for UMD.

The verification procedure for ARC - does it involve running ARC together with other relevant packages in the release to make sure compatibility is met?
