  1. GITHUB and EMI Services
    The EMI PEB and PTB members have recommended to adopt GITHUB as the source versioning system for new EMI products. Since such products represent the collective effort of several partners across different middleware collaborations within EMI, the use of GITHUB allows a better and neutral management of the code without having to handle Institute-specific access policies. In addition it sends the correct message in terms of open source code development

  2. EMI 1 Updates
    The EMI 1 Updates are regularly released according to the established process. So far 10 Updates containing fixes for issues found in several products have been released and more are in the pipeline. It is important to keep a good balance between being responsive in fixing important issues and keeping stability by postponing to later releases changes for which there is no critical need right now. However, it has also been agreed with user communities such as WLCG that in case of critical issues software can be made available from the EMI testing repository on an "as-is" basis even before the certification process is finished. Use of software from the EMI testing repository is left to the expert responsibility of the users evaluating it and support is provided on a best effort basis

  3. EGI Review of EMI Support Units performance
    At the last EGI TCB meeting, a review of the performance of EMI Support Unit in handling 3rd-level requests has been presented. The numbers are impressive. There are very few violations and globally the EMI SUs are handling requests well within the agreed Service Level Agreement. Even the violation are within a few percentage points of the agreed times and some of them are probably due to an incorrect interpretation of the information. Congratulations to all the PTS.

  4. QA Policy Documents
    A number of QA Policies are being updated taking into account requirements for Debian and for release into the official Maven repository for Java components. More info at

  5. EMI Technical Vision Meeting
    A meeting of the ECB with a number of EMI technical managers and leaders will take place at CERN on Dec 14th and 15th. This meeting is expected to assess the current situation with the EMI 2 technical development and the future strategies on cloud and the open source initiative. The EMI 2 and EMI 3 roadmap will be updated as necessary after the meeting and the information will be distributed to all PTs

  6. ETICS Client 1.6.0
    A new test release of the ETICS Client providing the required features for SL6 and Debian has been deployed and is used for the standard EMI Nightly Builds. Comments and feedback are welcome.
