OSG DevOps

New: - Request to inject entire HTCondor job classad into GRACC records. Will require gratia-probe-condor changes.

Ongoing: - Shoveler and Collector is tested, now converting UNL to using the shoveler. - Stashcp changes to support authenticated reading from /ospool namespace is done and lightly tested.

Back burner: - (Stalled, but need to get back to it) XRootD accounting information (from Frank): - May need help with automating the process of generating these reports. A month only takes a few minutes. Longer periods take much longer. - Table of working set, read, and re-read for monthly, quarterly, and year. - XRootD TCP plugin is ready for packaging. Derek will follow up with software team on who to hand that off to. -
