The publication of the major release of middleware services in the information system is very useful for operational purposes and to monitor the deployment of a major release in the grid infrastructure.

The command glite-version together with the glite-info-provider-release plugin is used to publish the gLite version, 3.1 o 3.2, of a service in the information system. glite-version relies on some information provided by the metapackage in the form of files organised in the following way:


In order to configure glite-info-provider-release, yaim-core has the function config_gip_service_release as documented in the YAIM twiki.

A similar solution needs to be implemented for EMI, not necessarily following this approach since metapackages are not supposed to contain any files in EMI.

Some ideas have been discussed so far:

  • Modify the config file of glite-info-service to publish the EMI major release by adding i.e.
get_otherinfo = echo -e "MiddlewareName=EMI\nMiddlewareVersion=1.0\nMetapackageVersion=1.2.3"
  • Create an emi-version package released only in major releases.
  • Mechanism to provide a file like /etc/grid-middleware that will contain EMI 1.0 (or gLite3.2, or whatever).
