Patch to Job Description.pm to provide local environment (3.33 KB, patch)

Description From 2006-10-04 13:48:11

In Open Science Grid, we modify JobDescription.pm. The patch is currently only
installed on OSG sites (at install time, not build time), so I haven't been too
worried about it. 

The purpose of the patch is to fill a job's environment with variables that are
local to the site. The variables are all within a Bourne shell script. 

I'm thinking of applying the patch for all VDT installations, not just OSG
ones, and I want to make sure that there are no side effects of this patch. It
*should* be the case that if the file
$GLOBUS_LOCATION/../monitoring/osg-attributes.conf does not exist, that it has
no effect on other installations. 

Charles Bacon and I agreed that it would be good to run it by you, just to make
sure that you agree with this. Do you agree?

By the way, this is a nice sort of patch to have. The file is OSG specific, but
if it was generalized a tiny bit, it might be useful to other Globus users. I'm
not asking for it now, but it might be worth your consideration.
