    • Changes in the groups.conf file
    • Special accounts management

Queries like this are now cached for future use, and can also be supplied *before* use, like they now are for lcg-info-dynamic-scheduler. That program now generates slices of the job list for the various combinations queue/group/state that will be needed while running the program.

    There were previously two different 'return a list of matching job' functions, with different interfaces. These now have a unified interface so that result caching can be supported. This does break backwards compatibility for
