Anton: (slides)
  Do unit testing of examples in ConnectBook documentation.
  Eventual goal is to add unit tests for various modules
    and to run these on all the sites accessible from
    osg-connect. Have a report each morning.
    Can query osg-flock host for list of sites that
      accept jobs, and then generate a condor submit
      file to send a job to each site.
    Could run tests that come with software, or our own tests.
      Problems with existing tests: Can take a long
        time (like for python), or they may try running
        in the directory where the software is
        installed, which won't work for cvmfs.

Suchandra: (slides)
  Installed Gromacs and R. Have a user from U of
  Chicago for Gromacs. Tested Gromacs successfully on
  multiple sites.

  The module tracking mentioned in the last call is now
  installed. Will be able to get stats on how often the
  different modules are set up. Do a DB query to get
  the info.


   Installed gcc 4.6.4.
   Also installed the Matlab freely-distributable
   runtime. Requires license server to run.


  Helping user from USDA with an application that runs
  for 4 to 7 days. Used condor_compile and doing
  checkpoints every few hours. Right now running at
  GLOW in Wisconsin. Trying to get it to run on OSG if
