  1. The current NA2 leader (Diana Cresti, INFN) is stepping down from her role for personal reasons; INFN has proposed Antonio Calanducci as new NA2 leader. Antonio will be Diana's deputy during October to become familiar with his new role and will become officially NA2 leader as of 1 November
  2. Following a request for clarification from JRA1 about bundling third-party components into the EMI releases, the following general rules have been stated by the PEB:
    1. As a general rule EMI doesn't bundle any third-party component as part of its supported releases
    2. If a required third-party component is available from an official public repository, it will have to be deployed from that repository
    3. If a required third-party component is NOT available from an official public repository and no agreement can be established to make that happen, then EMI will consider including these components in a special section of its own repository without direct support from EMI
    4. If none of the above cases is true and the third-party component is required and no suitable replacement can be found, the component will have to be included in the EMI releases as supported component. Support will have to be provided by the Product Team(s) requiring the component
    5. The final case concerns licensed software for which none of the above cases may apply. We should probably try to avoid this case as much as practically possible. If it happens, the sites will have to handle the installation directly using the any official means specified by the licensed software provider.
  3. In addition, it has been reminded that EMI is establishing a dedicated collaboration program called "Works with EMI" that will handle the collaboration with technical third-parties and will also take into account packaging and distribution requirements. As an example, the Globus components currently required by certain EMI services are not bundled within EMI, but taken from standard OS repositories and maintained by the IGE project.
