Urgent Updates Urges

The latest gLite update (r24) is labeled as urgent. Turns out that this is only because the VOMS certificate for is going to expire at the end of the month.

Forunately, we have the lcg-vomscerts RPM directly controlled by cfengine, so it was a simple matter to update this part of the system.

Of course, while we're languishing at r20 the world is marching on, so we'll have to play catch-up sometime. Currently I've sheduled next Thursday as our site upgrade day. I'm glad we have the cluster independent of any other authentication system - it means finding all of those new UIDs for sgm and prd accounts will not be a problem.

(I'm also glad we didn't break our DPM with the current fiasco over gridmap file paths!)
