UMD releases status

Status of the products verification/staged rollout

  • dCache 2.2.17 is struggling to find early adopters. Apparently many sites are planning to move to 2.6.x (which should be good)

Ready for the release

  • UMD 2 update
    • GSIssh v.5.3.9
    • CREAM GE v2.0.2
    • BDII Top and Core
    • DPM 1.8.6

Issues found during release preparation

During the verification of the last emi-wn we encountered a problem with the missing 32bits libraries cumming from lcg_utils. This issue was partially solved after the PT sent the list of the update 32bits libraries also update since one of this 32bits libraries asked for a dependency of another 32bits libraries from another PT (grid-site). Conclusion we needed to redo 4 PPA' s (WN, UI, gride-site and lcg_utils) which was time consuming and stressful.

Our release process doesn't automatically fetch all the necessary RPM from EPEL (otherwise we will fetch other dependencies not directly released by the PTs) meaning we always need an correct list of RPM's for each release even the 32 bits (not the full 32 bits list but only the 32bits rpm's needed by the 64 bits version).

Updates from the product teams

This section is directly contributed by the product teams. Please, add under your section the scheduled releases with a short comment about the updates introduced and where they are going to be released (EMI repositories, EPEL, private repositories ecc), linking external pages with these information is ok, but please add at least the expected date of the next release. It is important to discuss, within the URT, changes that may affect directly or indirectly other products. The text will be copied into the agenda of the next URT meeting, PT will just need to check that all the information are up to date.

Small wiki page available to describe the information needed to create an entry from EPEL: EPEL as a source for UMD

Keep Product ID cards up to date

Product teams should keep the URT:UMD_products_ID_cards up to date. In particular PTs who are releasing not in the EMI/IGE repositories anymore. For example, if the product components are split across EPEL and EMI (metapackage, yaim components..), add: "EPEL, EMI"
