OSG Software Team

EL9 GPG key had to be recreated again so packages have to be rebuilt.

  • AI (Carl): Debug VMU image generation for EL9; CHTC infrastructure staff can answer questions about Kickstart
  • AI (Carl): Rebuild EL9 packages to get signed with the new GPG key
  • AI (Mat): Clean-up work on OSPool Container Universe project
  • AI (TimT): Test HTCondor 10.x on EL9; this requires an EL9 VM or host in order to test cgroupv2 support, since that is based on the kernel version
