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.

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?
