Decommissioning SL5

  • SL5 support aligned with RHEL5
    • no more "Full support”; end of "Transition" Phase on January 31, 2014 • not getting anymore new software functionalities
    • in "Maintenance" until March 31, 2017 • only urgent/critical fixes until then
  • Supporting CentOS7 in UMD requires to schedule the end of support of SL5 in UMD
    • No more new packages for SL5, only security/important fixes accepted
  • SL5 services must be decommissioned by end of April 2016; broadcast at December, probes will be warning since February 2016 to start helping with decommissioning


Distributing middleware as Docker images

  • releasing UMD4 products as Docker images in addition to RPMs
    • pros: can run on hardware, no virtualization platform needed
    • cons: maybe hard to create/maintain
  • to be provided by TPs and/or volunteer sites
  • possible profiles: site/top BDII, CEs

Monthly Availability/Reliability
