  • services.scheduler.fileMode removed
  • services.MemoryTracker.filename renamed to services.MemoryTracker.dbOutput.filename


Marc Paterno asked about gcc 6.4 for art v2.08.00, Lynn Garren answered that it would take several weeks to rebuild the entire product stack, so the compiler switch will happen sometime after the art v2.08.00 release.

There was some discussion about the service desk being confused about who supports upd, which is actually Mark Mengel.

NOvA is on art 1.17.06 and preparing to upgrade to art v2.08.00.  There was some discussion of porting issues.
