SA1.5 Accounting

Repository The SSM 2 central repository is in production and we now have our first production client, data is being published using the EMI 3 APEL client from UKI-LT2-QMUL. Chris Walker from QMUL has also produced a report on the process and a new version of the EMI 3 APEL Client has been released today which fixed some bugs found in the initial release. This is EMI 3 Update 3, which we would like to be included in the UMD 3 release if possible.

We have another site who we expect to be publishing in production in the next few days (UA-KNU); they have carried out successful tests and we are just negotiating which month they should start publishing to the new system from.

APEL repositories are ready for a production level usage of SSM2. A site MUST migrate all their accounting clients to UMD-3 (SSM2), there can't be an hybrid situation. CREAM from UMD-2 with APEL from UMD-3 can work. It's theoretically possible also the other way around: CREAM-3 with APEL from UMD-2. This was not tested by APEL (but Enol did some preliminary tests). The manual documenting the transition from EMI-2 APEL to EMI-3 is under preparation. The new APEL clients are now in the UMD repositories, under verification.
