Release of lcg-vomscerts x.y.z for gLite 3.1


Dear gLite users,

A new version of lcg-vomscerts has been released for gLite 3.1.

lcg-vomscerts x.y.z adds next cert for .... and
removes old certs for ....

The rpm is available in the gLite 3.1 yum repositories of:

* glite-FTS_oracle
* glite-WMS

Please note that the repository of the following 3.1 services IS NOT going
to be updated with this version of lcg-vomscerts:

* lcg-CE

The mentioned node types no longer need lcg-vomscerts when they have
been configured correctly. i.e. when for each supported VO a directory
/etc/grid-security/vomsdir/<vo> contains a "*.lsc" file for each of
its VOMS servers.

YAIM handles that automatically, see the "VO_<vo-name>_VOMSES" and
"VO_<vo-name>_VOMS_CA_DN" variables in the YAIM documentation:

To update just the lcg-vomscerts rpm:

 yum update lcg-vomscerts

For other node types, or sites that do not use yum or YAIM, the rpm is
available here:


Best regards,
The gLite Release Team
