Assume: will have lots of SLC4 production systems in 2007
- No reason to wait for SLC5
- Can roll out SLC4 on all services plan
- Need to involve GDB for Grid-wide roll-out coordination
SLC4 becomes less urgent, but more important:
- Already slippage: “end of 2005” “end of January 06” “after RHEL4U3”
- IT isn't the only one being late with SLC4 –
- 0 (zero) pressure from experiments until now...
- But: will need to work. SLC4 would be the LHC release
- No “second chance” to get it right..
