Official gLite web page

The best practice would be to upgrade unsupported services. In case of critical bugs or software vulnerabilities no patches will be released. Would it be possible for NGIs to report the sites that cannot upgrade their glite3.1 services to EMI (e.g. because old hardware?)?

3. AOB

3.1 Argus gLite 3.2

The support schedule for ARGUS is currently consistent with the other gLite3.2 components: security updates until April 2012 (release EMI-2).

This is a problem for the ARGUS PT, developers cannot put effort on developing patches for the gLite 3.2 release of the component. EMI is considering to officially drop the ARGUS support in gLite 3.2.
NGIs should report if there are sites that need gLite 3.2 ARGUS, and that need support for this version of the service. This topic will be discussed in the next OMB July 26th.

3.2 Report glite3.2 critical problems

EMI's Support policy for gLite 3.2 is to port patches only for critical bugs. Any minor update will not be released for glite 3.2
Operations Managers are kindly invited to report during the Operations Meeting bugs and problems affecting gLite 3.2 services, or patches available for EMI releases that should be also ported to gLite3.2.
If Operations Managers agree, the request to rise the priority of the patch should come from the EGI operations community, rather than a single site/NGI.
