OSG Software Team

  • AI (Mat): Create secondary instance of on the UChicago River cluster.
  • AI (Mat): Test vault/htvault-config/htgettoken
  • AI (Brian): Set osg-flock VOOverride to "osg"
  • AI (TimT): Release HTCondors 9.0.8 and 9.4.0


  • Tim added "devops-minefield" repos to osg-release; this can be tested manually.
  • Marco:

    • GlideinWMS 3.7.6 is in progress; most GitHub issues have been merged, as well as a new check for expired tokens. A release candidate is expected later today.

    • The GlideinWMS license is changing from Fermi-modified BSD to Apache2; using REUSE ( and SPDX (, which make managing licenses in source code very convenient; these might be also be useful for other OSG projects and HTCondor team.

Support Update

  • BNL (Mat): debug authentication issues when accessing an xrootd server using WebDAV
  • Lancium (Mat, BrianL): debug not finding Singularity in backfill container
  • GATech (Derek): Gratia probe is reporting a lot of groups.

OSG DevOps

  • Stashcp now supports recursive downloads. Release upcoming. How should we handle packaging of stashcache-client in OSG repos?
    • Some stashcp debugging is in order for proxy support.
  • xrootd-monitoring-shoveler running at UCSD and Florida (RPM) and UNL (K8s)
  • Go packaging:
    • No network for builds, so deps come from EPEL or from a dependency bundle.
    • Derek will investigate what dependencies are already in EPEL (likely all of them)
