Since it was discussed later in the meeting here is a link to the Globus support change information. Globus Toolkit support will end/change as of January 2018; The Globus cloud service and Globus Connect are unaffected. See announcement at https://github.com/globus/globus-toolkit/blob/globus_6_branch/support-changes.md
No new software deployments to announce
XSEDE is working on a solution for multifactor authentication to extend beyond the current Duo licensing which ends April 31, 2018. The possible solutions are to extend Duo for one more year and Operations is looking at getting the best price for XSEDE users for this solution. Also an XSEDE Project Innovation Fund request has been initiated to evaluate the Duo versus a solution that is the same MFA solution TACC provides for their users. XCI is working on the information and recommendation to XSEDE leadership. A decision should be coming soon.
Marlon Pierce was invited to present on SPs and Science Gateways. His slides are here
A good discussion resulted and I'll summarize some of the questions and answers/results:
Q: Who can help SPs with implementation and support of Gateways?
A: Marlon Pierce's group is the right place for that. Just like the SP Coordinator helps coordination SPs throughout integration with XSEDE, Marlon specifically works with gateway developers and with SPs to address integration issues.
Q: Where is the gateway-submit attribute software?
A: See the XSEDE Software repository at
