We are making progress on VDT 1.8.1, which we expect to be the version used in OSG 0.8.0. Of particular note: we now have basic support for the VDT-Client package for Mac OS X on x86. Not all clients are supported, notably Condor, but a useful core is supported.
Tim asked about the latitude and longitude question on configure-osg.sh. We would like the answers to be used by VORS. Anand said that he thinks the answer is stored in osg-attributes.conf.
We're planning to update Globus in VDT 1.6.1 and 1.8.1. There are four patches to be applied. Details: (VDT ticket 2879)
