     4== Input from dCache Tier I/II experts == 
     5 
     6  Based on the discussion at the dCache CHEP BOF in Victoria,  
     7  I would like to invite sites having SRM 2.2 deployed to add  
     8  input on what they think would help other sites in setting  
     9  up and configuring dCache 1.8 and the SRM 2.2 space management  
     10  system. In order to do so please get an dCache.org wiki account  
     11  [wiki:HowToContribute here] and add a link to your contribution 
     12  [wiki:share/deploymentindex here]. 
     13 
     14  This page is linked from the dCache.org top wiki page, which  
     15  is linked from the www.dcache.org. Right now we don't intend  
     16  to  introduce a sophisticated wiki ACL schema. So please be 
     17  nice and don't modify pages created by others unless the  
     18  original author agrees. 
     19 
     20== Regular phone conferences on dCache SRM 2.2 deployment status == 
     21 
     22  There is a regular Friday conference call on the 
     23  status of the dCache 1.8 in the PPS. The developers  
     24  as well as Flavia will be present. 
     25  The Dial in Coordinates are : 
     26  {{{ 
     27   Time : Friday(s)  16:00 Europe/ 9:00 am Chicago 
     28   Call : US 510-665-5437 
     29   Meeting ID: 9524 
     30  }}} 
     31 
     32== Consolidating development efforts == 
     33 
     34  We are rapidly approaching d-day, the day dCache 1.8 is  
     35  expected to have production quality and will be deployed  
     36  at the first Tier I centers. In order to optimize the  
     37  (very short) time left, Timur and myself decided to  
     38  re-adjust development responsibilities in order to  minimize  
     39  transatlantic  coordination efforts. This  means in  
     40  particular that each 'dCache developing' site will now  
     41  concentrate on the components they are basically  
     42  responsible for. This is SRM and gPlazma for Fermilab,  
     43  the core component for DESY and gridFtp shared between  
     44  Fermilab and NDGF. For the dCache 1.8 deployment, nothing  
     45  changes except that, depending on the questions you have,  
     46  you may encounter a timezone based delay for the reply.  
     47  Please use the srm-deployment@dcache.org mailing list  
     48  for all dCache 1.8 and SRM 2.2 related issues. 
     49

     51== Tier I dCache 1.8 upgrades == 
     52 
     53  Although it is of course up to each individual site when  
     54  they intend to upgrade to dCache 1.8, I would appreciate  
     55  if those Tier I efforts would be coordinated with dCache.org  
     56  to ensure sufficient support during that time. So please  
     57  let me know as soon as possible on your upgrade plans. 
     58 
     59== Last words == 
     60 
     61  Whenever you have further questions on when or how to upgrade  
     62  your site to dCache 1.8  I would be happy to arrange a phone  
     63  conference between you and the developers. 
     64 
     65  thanks and regards
