OSG Software Team

  • Release
    • AI (Mat): XCache and osg-xrootd mapfile-related releases
  • Kubernetes Hackathon
    • AI (Mat): Flux v1 -> v2 transition
    • AI (BrianL): review Helm chart CI, investigate path-facility-admin RBAC issues and Expanse user namespace issues


  • The script that tests upgrades from HTCondor 9 to 10 needs improvements; there will be an updated release soon.
  • The release of HTCondor 10.0.4 is waiting for scitokens-cpp 1.0.2 to be released.
  • Derek and Fabio are debugging why the open and close times for transfers are the same; this leads to reporting an infinite amount of bandwidth since the reported transfer time is zero

Support Update

  • AMNH (BrianL): issues mounting CVMFS, no luck getting debug logs
  • Fermilab (BrianL): WLCG folks are worried about accounting for VO information with tokens. (OSG SW and GRACC look at the SciToken issuer.) Steve Timm ran into a problem where multiple VOs were using a single AP where DAGMan-created jobs don't have any of the auth token attributes. There is a workaround since Steve's jobs still have VOMS attributes but passing the token attributes requires HTCondor changes.
  • SDSC (Mat): The OSDF authfile generator service was renamed and the documentation wasn't updated with the new paths; Mat made a PR to fix the documentation.


  • APEL accounting updates for new HEPScore benchmark.
    • Derek will try to schedule meetings with USCMS and USATLAS groups to present the (minor) changes to topology.
  • OSDF client director, Derek needs to review.
