OSG Software Team

Doc focus today! Tickets incoming

Release - AI (Mat): release xrdcl-pelican - AI (Matt): verify cadist is populated by osg-ca-certs-java

Miscellaneous: - AI (BrianL, Mat): deploy ITB OSDF Pelican origin - AI (Matt): build OSDF cache helm chart

Remaining OSG 23 items - AI (Matt): Figure out if we need VOMS for EL9/an update to EL8 - AI (BrianL): Finish transition of internal containers to OSG 23 - AI (Mat): Investigate automatically regenerating development/minefield repos


  • HTCondor 23.x release candidate is deployed on the CHTC pool; CentOS 7 is added back as a supported platform.

  • The IGTF 1.126 CA distribution preemptively pulled the old IGTF CA (that is still valid and in use); OSG software will not be releasing that version until the next year.

Support Update

  • University of Tokyo/KAGRA (BrianL): University of Tokyo KAGRA cache admin's registration was not showing up in Topology; Brian applied a workaround and also fixed the issue with the Topology software
  • JLab (Matt): Admins were informed about a new XRootD version that should fix their crash
