TSA2.1 Activity Management

This task focuses on the management of the activity and the relationship with EGI’s software providers. Prioritised requirements from elsewhere in EGI are collated and distributed to the current software providers and published for the whole community. The functional roadmaps and release dates from individual software providers are assembled into an integrated UMD Roadmap. The projected UMD Roadmap is monitored and the effectiveness of software providers to deliver components to the required schedule and quality will be reported to the TCB. This work will be managed by the Technology Manager who reports to the Project Director and will hold regular meetings of the team to ensure effective coordination of its activities. Additional meetings will be held with the external providers to provide a forum for conflict resolution.

TSA2.2: Definition of the UMD quality criteria

The generic component acceptance criteria will be provided and updated according to evolving needs. Specific criteria will be developed for components on the UMD Roadmap.

TSA2.3: Verification of conformance criteria

The components contributed to the repository will be validated against the generic and component specific conformance criteria. SA2 will be involved in pre-release component testing. Verification of each component will be summarised in an acceptance report, available with the component in the repository.

TSA2.4: Provision of a software repository and support tools

Necessary services to deliver the functionality of the repository and its surrounding process (FTP server, web server, issue tracker, version control system, etc.) will be provided and maintained.

TSA2.5: Deployed Middleware Support Unit

Expertise is needed in the production infrastructure to debug problems and then to propose workarounds or solutions with the software used in production. This group will be deployed as a support unit (second line support) as part of the EGI Helpdesk and it will work closely with other EGI operations functions and the external software providers.
