Here from Tim Theisen

Hi Tim,
end of July works fine for GlideinWMS.
8.9 is used in the development version that will drop it in the next release due out soon.
GWMS 3.6.x stable uses OSG 3.5, condor 8.8.

Thank you,
Marco

Hi Marco,

We would remove it from the Development version. This will become the
new stable. We had originally stated the HTCondor 9.0 would be out this
summer. It's now looking like fall. So, if we remove it from 8.9. It
would only be in the 8.8 version (not 9.0). HTCondor will support 8.8
for 6 months after the release of 9.0. So, glexec would be in a
supported version until next spring. The OSG may elected to continue the
support for longer. We have done so in the past.

Does that make sense to you?

Would it be a hardship if glexec is dropped from the 8.9 series at the
end of July? (Otherwise, we could drop support for it at the end of
September.)

Let me know what works for you.

Green light for dropping GlExec

GLExec is no longer used in the FIFE factories, by DUNE or by the CMS factories
and it is not installed anyplace at Fermilab anymore.
