Dear all,

Could someone try to explain me what the movitations are to do this? Honestly speaking, I dont think that Alien is meant for such an application. What if a job runs for weeks on the grid? How can it garantuee synchronisation? And what if not all sites enable crontab by the grid user?

I could imagine, though, that it is useful for the QA tests of the software, e.g. check compilation, building, and ctest runs via dashboard, but then for the Grid machines as well. To do it for making a head package available for developers to run their jobs with, I am afraid that it will not work out. For that, stick to stable releases for the "normal" users, and give access to developers to install and their own software via the useall packman procedure.

Kind wishes,
