Drop GlExec support
Drop support for GlExec
Announced at the stakeholders' meeting.
There are only a couple of sites using this in Europe and they are phasing out (check w/ Steve Tim)
Tim Thaysen mentioned on 6/19 that the Flightworthy team would like to get rid of it.

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.

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. ...Tim
