[Condor-users] EMAIL LIST NAME CHANGE to htcondor-users on Nov 7th

In order to match the name change of the Condor software to HTCondor (*see below for details), be aware the name of this email list will be changing from "condor-users" to "htcondor-users". This switchover is scheduled for Weds Nov 7th @ 10am central USA time. You will see the change reflected in the subject line and email headers (such as reply-to, list-id). For instance, the start of the subject line will switch from "[Condor-users]" to "[HTCondor-users]". You may want to adjust any personal automatic email filters accordingly. We anticipate the switchover will take less than two hours. During the switchover, there could be a delay of email delivery and the archives may be unavailable.

Other than the above, the impact to you should be minimal because: i) anyone subscribed to condor-users will be subscribed to htcondor-users, ii) email sent to condor-users@xxxxxxxxxxx will be automatically forwarded to htcondor-users@xxxxxxxxxxx, iii) the condor-users archive of old messages will be moved to htcondor-users, and iv) web URLs to the condor-users list page will be redirected to the new htcondor-users page.

Thank you,
UW-Madison HTCondor Team

"Condor" name changing to "HTCondor"

In order to resolve a lawsuit challenging the University of Wisconsin-Madison's use of the "Condor" trademark, the University has agreed to begin referring to its Condor software as "HTCondor" (pronounced "aitch-tee-condor"). The letters at the start of the new name ("HT") derive from the software's primary objective: to enable high throughput computing, often abbreviated as HTC. Starting in the end of October and through November of this year, you will begin to see this change reflected on our web site, documentation, web URLs, email lists, and wiki. While the name of the software is changing, nothing about the naming or usage of the command-line tools, APIs, environment variables, or source code will change. Portals, procedures, scripts, gateways, and other code built on top of the Condor software should not have to change at all when HTCondor is installed.
