Date 27.07.2009
Priority High


New version of glite-info-provider-ldap

This version fixes an issue observed with glite-BDII 3.2.1-0 at some production sites and reported with (GGUS:50372): it was noticed that in particular conditions a site could disappear from the top-level BDII if the 'GlueTop' attribute is removed from the services they publish.

If you have this version deployed at your top-level BDII, please upgrade asap.

Introduction of the DPM mysql

This update introduces the glite-DPM_mysql node type for SL5 x86_64. This update contains a new version of glite-info-provider-service and that's why the BDII is affected by this patch, although in practice the changes introduced by this version of glite-info-provider-service only affect DPM.
