JRA1.7 - List of EMI-1 meta-packages


  • Provide a complete list of EMI1-meta-packages

Open issues

  • What is the definition of a meta-package? Is described in Packaging Guidelines. Every PT should provide a meta-package to define sets of packages to be installed together. Furthermore, there are cross-PT meta packages (e.g. EMI UI).
  • The collected metapackage names are mostly not conform to the EMI naming conventions. Request to Cristina about the correct name of a metapackage.
  • Discussion with Steve about SAGA packages in UI and WN. Should there be a separate metapackage for SAGA, so that we have metapackages of metapackages?

EMI Key Objectives in Context (derived from deliverable DNA1.3.1)

  • None
    • TBD: to be revised by PTB

Status from requesting PT leaders about EMI-1 meta-packages (will not be updated anymore)

  • Cross PTs
    • EMI-UI
    • EMI-WN
  • gLite PTs
    • glite-apel (John, not clear if ready for EMI-1)
    • CREAM-CE (info from John Gordon, that glite-apel-core will be part of it)
    • gLite-LB (Zdenek, for EMI-1)
    • gLite-PX (Zdenek, for EMI-1)
    • emi.voms.voms-MYSQL (Vincenzo, for EMI-1)
    • emi.voms.voms-ORACLE (Vincenzo, planned later)
    • (potential metapackages using VOMS components (CREAM, WMS, DPM, FTS, dgas, px, storm, probably others))
    • site-level BDII (Laurence, for EMI-1)
    • top-level BDII (Laurence, for EMI-1)
    • resource-level BDII (Laurence, potential metapackage for later releases if required)
    • gLite-MPI (Enol, for EMI-1)
    • emi-argus (Valery, for EMI-1, contains Argus Authorization Service with PAP, PDP, PEP Server)
    • (potential metapackages using argus components (emi-cream))

    • no UNICORE meta-packages for EMI-1. UNICORE components (UCC, Hila Shell, Hila U6) are part of EMI-UI
  • ARC PTs
    • currently no ARC meta-packages; but we plan to have them for EMI-1
      • for yum-based distros we use groupinstall
        yum groupinstall "ARC Server"
        yum groupinstall "ARC Client" 
        further information on meta-packages names will be provided as we have them

  • dCache PTs
    • dcache-clients (Patrick, however should be already part of gLite-UI)
