  • The RHEL/CentOS/SL update from version 6.4 to 6.5 caused problems for the globus gatekeeper:
  • The problem was caused by updating openssl from version 1.0.0 to version 1.0.1.
  • One globus package (globus-gssapi-gsi) was identified as behaving differently when compiled against openssl 1.0.0 and 1.0.1. (It is the only one that has a requires on when compiled against openssl 1.0.1)

Decommission of UMD-2

Decommission calendar for UMD-2 services has been approved:

  • All UMD-2 components must be decommissioned or upgraded by the end of May 2014.

Product teams who support products in UMD-2 (e.g. EMI-2 products) which support calendar goes beyond the end of April 2014 should provide information about the calendar in the URT mailing list, and update the URT:UMD_products_ID_cards.

Changes in the UMD process for import of products

So far UMD processes resolved the dependencies in the EMI, IGE or QCG repositories to create the most complete product entries for the UMD framework.

Some product team moved permanently to EPEL, other product teams are still releasing to EMI but not as a main repository, in many cases for UMD is impossible to resolve the dependencies getting a reasonable set of libraries (e.g. without downloading the EPEL dependencies not under the PT responsibility).

UMD team has started at the end of last year to list directly the list of relevant RPMs that compose a product entry in the UMD release process. The rpm files are then downloaded with a direct wget into the UMD repositories.

Pros: RPMs or DEB can be downloaded from YAIM or Debian repositories but also from web sites with a wget easier to import into UMD repositories the products.

Cons: Since there is no check about the integrity of the dependencies in UMD until the products are tested for installation, it is important that product teams provide correct list of rpms once they want to submit their products to UMD. Also 32 bit libraries where available.
