Present: David, Jon, Zsolt, Zsombor

Where: Skype room mailmagnes


  • Zsombor went through draft on data consolidation plan

  • Zsolt: GFAL2 status
    • GFAL2 under preparation
    • Complete rewrite
    • Convincing tests, already able to mount and copy
    • Should start using GFAL2 instead of GFAL1
    • Want to freeze GFAL1
    • Will be added to EMI2
    • No new features in GFAL1
    • David: My point was more that experiments will not change from anything they use now (eg GFAL) to anything new (eg GFAL2) before the 2013 shutdown, so expect to support old stuff for a while.
  • Zsolt: same situation for lcg_util as for GFAL
    • if you don't want to use new features, just keep lcg_util
    • Jon: we don't need to care about compatibility layer in plan
  • David: Is there any functionality in lcg cli (eg POSIX) that is not provided by libarcdata, (just to know if libarcdata can work for all lcd commands)?
  • Zsolt: no.
  • Zsolt needs to check [something] out

  • Jon went through some open questions from the draft
    • Most questions answered, Jon will send out an updated draft


  • Zsolt will check out [something]
  • Jon will send out an updated draft
