OSG Software Team


  • AI (Mat): Release XRootD 5.6+
  • AI (BrianL): Release xrootd-multiuser-2.1.3+
  • AI (Matt): osg-ca-scripts missing dependency on perl-filetest. We need this done before we can build EL9 tarballs - no longer included with base perl packages in EL9. MatS to provide special Perl packaging tips.
  • AI (Matt): Release oidc-agent-4.4.2+. SRPMs no longer provided by upstream, github is not properly organized to use as source. Either a spec file in the github, or return to releasing the srpm

OSG 23 tasks

  • What's the next step in the Yubikey setup for promoting packages? Per-developer key, packages get re-signed when promoted from development to testing Need to:
    • Update script OSG Promote
    • Generate promotion key
    • Create Yubikey for each developer (4 or 5)
    • Workflow update: Will need to sign packages locally, since you can't use a Yubikey on Moria
  • AI (Matt): Build buildsys-macro packages
  • AI (BrianL): build package list
  • AI (Matt): update release scripts to accommodate OSG 23 New args: ... (as long as it sorts)

Kubernetes Hackathon (Next Week)

  • TBD


None this week

Support Update

  • Topology/GGUS (BrianL, Mat): Topology does not accept certs from SHA1-signed CAs. We need to petition G√ľnter to get the German CA to update their signing key. Mat: Reach out to Gunter to update CA, update Topology to temporarily accept SHA1
  • Louvain (Mat): OSG-based CVMFS installation hitting Syracuse cache from Europe. We should probably just suggest that he install the EGI config while we sort out policy.
  • Renewing Colorado host certificates (Matt): Awaiting approval by Douglas


  • Hosted-CE availability email, will need Brian Lin to create service account (Ashton will follow up)
