There is also confusion about when mini projects began, and when they ended.

- polishing the first stable release, scheduled for next week
ToDo for next week

TSA4.9 - VAPOR
Project is due to end on 15th of April. As already mentioned previously, the user community features (users database, user's life cycle management) will not be started by the end of the project this time.
- Dark data and lost files handling completed:
- Development has been completed with improvements of errors management and reporting
- It is now deployed on the production instance and available for all supported VOs
- Addition of an home page with links for each supported VO
- In the JobMonitor tabular view, addition of a new feature to display the errors that occurred for each CE queue during the selected period (is case there was at least one error).
Plans for next period
Start migrating the MySQL database of VAPOR from the I3S instance to a MySQL farm of servers of the IN2P3 Computing Center in Lyon.
Main developer, Flavien Forestier will be finishing his contract on April 10th. Passed this date, the project manager Franck Michel, will perform maintenance and bug fixing, but no more new feature will be developed.
