VDT Office Hours 20 April 2006


No office hours next week

Because the VDT team is part of the Condor Team, and because next week is Condor Week, there will be no VDT office hours next week. Note that due to Condor Week, the VDT team will be very preoccupied next week.

CA Certificates

Within the next day or two, the VDT team will release a new update to the CA Certificates to incorporate changes from the IGTF 1.2 CA certificate distribution.

MDS Problems

The VDT team is close to getting a build ready for the MDS 2 update. Burt tells us that the stability problems he has seen are the major reason that LCG deploys the BDII on each site: only the BDII talks to MDS 2, and BDII (which is a much more recent version of OpenLDAP) is the only point of contact with the outside world.

Globus-Updates Problem?

Apparently Alan Sill is having odd Pacman problems (looping packages) with the Globus-Updates package. We'll look into it.
