Communication

  • Steve: would like to see faster response time from developers on support tickets opened in the redmine
    • Parag: Team is aware of it and working on improving the situation. Redmine is used by the developers as development issue tracker and is not as a support ticketing system. Please use glideinwms-support mailing list for support.

Roadmap

  • Tony: Are the items listed in the mid term roadmap ordered by priority? Seems like no progress has been made on moving issues to HTCondor
    • Mambelli: Operation/support load and other feature/bug fixes creep in delaying this
    • Margaret: Is it ok from the stakeholders that the development team stop accepting request from the stakeholders to make progress on this?
    • Parag: Some of the features like Singularity scripts are in the direction of the HTCondor integration.

Technical

  • Brian Lin asked Dennis to join OSG slack so he can benefit from OSG experience and expertise in transferring artifacts from travis to github
  • Jeff Dost: After changes to monitoring are xml files going away? Factory operations prefer the JSON formatting
    • Mambelli: There will be different plugins. Old files will stay and new plugins will be added to influence the output
  • Antonio: Will the frontend monitoring changes showed by Thomas be in next glideinwms release?
    • Mambelli: Its a prototype and needs work before it is production ready. It is expected in second half of 2019
  • Burt: Whats the goal for coverage?
    • Mambelli: We started with < 10% and now we are above 20%. It will be nice to get to 50%. We also plan to do internal code review after 3.5 release and before python 3 migration

ACTION ITEMS

  • Create a public roadmap with prioritization. Time invested with the HTCondor team and moving features to HTCondor will help in long term.
  • Send reminder emails about the stakeholders meeting to stakeholders a week in advance.
