1. Task Meetings
2. Main Achievements
During this quarter it was made a major release of the UMD (UMD-3) which incorporated all the EMI-3 products. After the major release two updates were already released UMD-3.1.0 and UMD-3.1.1. In total over 50 products and sub-components were deployed and tested covering all of EMI products with a total of 2 rejections, gridsite 2.1.0 and apel 4.0.0 .
It also started the collaboration with SA2 in the new UMD Release Team (URT) activity. URT is a new lightweight coordination run by EGI SA2 in order to fill some gaps left after the end of the European middleware projects. This activity started in May of 2013 and main purpose is to keep open the communication channels between the product teams, as they existed previously within the middleware projects, and open new lines of communications between EGI and the product teams, as before they were mediated by the middleware projects technical coordination. SA1.3 responsibilities in this team is to provide feedback about the current issues found during the software provisioning, verification and stage rollout.
There was also some close collaboration between staged rollout activites and CSIRT team in order to check the readiness of the software towards the SHA-2 implementation and Argus interoperability. As an outcome of this work two wiki pages were create and constantly updated with relevant information regarding both cases. The wiki page for Middleware-argus-interoperability can be consulted here and the regarding the SHA-2 compliance here
To finally this intense QR it was made several campaigns to gather new EA for some products like glexec and cream and also gathering EA for new products like slurm and the full QCG products.
3. Issues and Mitigation
|Issue Description||Mitigation Description|
|It was found a security vulnerability in WMS
This release solves a vulnerability bug.
|Urgent release of a new release WMS v. 3.5.1 achieved and UMD 3.1.1.|
4. Plans for the next period
For the next quarter, the SA1.3 activities will suffer and important change since some of the PT's, previously integrated in the EMI project, will start release software in third party repositories like EPEL. This will completely change the way UMD gets the new releases, with and consequent increase in the complexity for the UMD release. During next quarter BDII and DPM product teams will start making there releases into EPEL testing repository and PT's will only move into production after the approval from EGI.
We foreseen that after this a new SW provisioning workflow will be needed in order to embrace that changes.
