[part of a series of meetings]

Participants

Al, Tigran, Sibel, Paul, Dmitry, Jürgen

Postcards

Al: All outstanding frontend and resilience work is now committed to trunk.

Tigran: Taught HTW Berlin course. Custom doors for DESY-internal doors were refactored.

Sibel:

Paul: XDC WP4 work (deciding an architecture for the overall integration).

Dmitry: New gplazma plugin. Support tasks

Jürgen: XDC, Jenkins backend, support / tickets, release 4.1

Special topics

Paul: Custom dCache diagnostics packages

Whenever we can't reproduce a problem, we tend to send sites a specialized version of dCache with improved / customized logging. This of course creates problems for the sites, being locked-in to those special versions.

Paul proposes using markers (from the slf4j package) to centrally switch on or off groups of debug logging and puts https://rb.dcache.org/r/10799/ forward for discussion.

We consider the patch too specialized and will likely drop it.

Release news

Normal releases are blocking on the errors in https://ci.dcache.org/job/dCache-v3.1/lastFailedBuild/consoleFull . Those have historically been transient.

4.1 release blocked on missing branch. Create it now?

4.1 release blocked on release notes. Let's write them!
