Useful development things

  • How can you (re)use your ETICS workspace as gLite UI for testing: EticsWSasUI?

  • Userspace Installation using APT: How to set up your gLite in userspace: DMUserspaceInstall.

  • Bored of recompiling dependencies? Use stage-rpm! More details in DMStageRPM

  • Checking for certificates - ask people to run this every time you see strange Globus / cGSI errors: check-node!
