Requirements: LIGO Upgrade to SL6 and Debian 6


LIGO is updating their supported platforms to Scientific Linux 6 and Debian 6, and they need the VDT to move with them. They will primarily use packages that now ship with EPEL and Debian, but need the VDT to fill in the gaps.


  1. For Red Hat 6, we are going to provide GSI-OpenSSH with mechglue.
  2. For Debian 6, we are going to provide GSI-OpenSSH with mechglue, MyProxy, and UberFTP
  3. The GridFTP init script needs to provide a mechanism to extend the set of environment variables. The VDT will either extend the existing init script or add an extra init script.

Timeline (Tentative)

We are going to start this work in mid-August (now), and provide you with these by mid to late September.


This page hasn't been updated in detail, but the work has been done. It went to production in December 2011.
