SouthGrid Technical Meeting at JET

The SouthGrid Technical Board met at JET.
All sites are moving towards SL4. The recent updates will be applied shortly.
The SouthGrid vo has been setup and a central LFC is being provided at RAL Tier 1 for it.
The outstanding tickets were looked at and all found to be solved. A problem was found, tickets still open in footprints were closed in GGUS, so the link may not be working properly.
Birmingham is setting up some ex escience nodes to be the interface to the new HPC cluster. This will bring back some of the spec int power lost due to hardware failures after recent electrical work.
