Email from Dimitri on Monday, 17. October 2011 14:17:
Dear NGI-DE/NGI-CH sites manager,
as you know, nagios SAM tests where using Wen Mei proxy certificates with OPS VO extension to submit SAM tests.
This weekend Wen Mei's membershift in OPS VO expired, even her certificate is still vallid. This was cause of weekend failures 
for nagios SAM tests. Now tests are running under Foued Jrad certificate with OPS VO extension. But still some sites have failed 
tests. This looks like a mapping problem. So please check the mapping for Foued Jrad.
In next days we would exchange this certificate with a robot certificate for SAM nagios tests. Next week the robot certificate will 
be in production.
