[HTCondor-users] HTCondor CREAM-CE Support

The CREAM working group has recently announced official support for the 
CREAM-CE will cease in December 2020. With this email, we are soliciting 
feedback on the HTCondor and Open Science Grid (OSG) transition plan. 
OSG and HTCondor remain committed to supporting groups who need access 
to CREAM-CE based resources throughout the transition period; we will 
continue to support submission to CREAM-CE endpoints and offer 
assistance to groups to help manage the transition.

OSG runs a glidein submission service built upon HTCondor that submits 
to grid infrastructures worldwide on behalf of dozens of science 
projects. This service currently submits to approximately 100 CREAM-CE 
endpoints; we will continue to maintain the capability to access these 
endpoints while we assist sites in testing and enabling ARC-CE and/or 
HTCondor-CE replacement services.

The HTCondor team plans to support the CREAM-CE on EL6/7 in the 8.8.x 
stable release series and will maintain support for 8.8.x through 
December 2020. CREAM-CE support will remain enabled at the start of the 
8.9.x developer series; in early 2020, the HTCondor team will 
re-evaluate, based on community need, whether CREAM-CE support will be 
available in the next stable series.

We realize that software retirements can be very disruptive; the OSG and 
HTCondor teams are committed to assisting user communities through the 
process. If you believe our plan does not fit the needs of your user 
community, please email help@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or
htcondor-admin@xxxxxxxxxxx (and/or ask questions in this email list).
