        • <big> REMINDER: Retirement of gLite 3.0 </big>
          As previously announced, it is planned that all remaining gLite 3.0 services will be retired by the end of April. At this point, all support for these services will cease.
          All sites should ensure that they are running up-to-date versions of their services.
          If any site sees a need to keep a gLite 3.0 service in the middleware stack, please submit a GGUS ticket as soon as possible.

          Reminder to report on progress on GOCdb-to-OIM for OSG sites in savannah support 107531
          The following tickets re-appear in the escalation report so the same comments are still valid.
          • Exactly this was discussed for the last 3 weeks and Rob had an action to check. GGUS #46647: The ticket is now assigned to Rob. The action required is in the 2009-03-24 by MariaDZ.
          • Comment on 2009-03-30 in stalled urgent ATLAS ticket since 2009-03-09 GGUS #46988:
            Tim and other OSG colleagues,
            my understanding from https://savannah.cern.ch/support/index.php?107511#comment3 is that
            had you chosen status 'customer' in OIM, 
            the ggus ticket would have gone to status 'waiting for reply' and the submitter would have been prompted 
            to react. Please do so now.
          Comments #9 and #3 in this ticket explain how to handle the OIM-GGUS field mapping for the above and other tickets.
