Dear HTCondor maintainers,
we'd love to use Ubuntu desktop nodes to submit jobs to our CentOS 7 cluster,
and potentially include the desktop nodes on the cluster to make use of the unused resources overnight.
For CentOS 7, we are using the packages maintained at:
To not mix these with packages from a completely different source, it would be perfect if there was also an official distribution for Ubuntu.
which, however, (according to the web page) are only meant for old releases of Debian / Ubuntu, some of which are already EOL since years.
Still, it appears they are maintained, as can be seen e.g. here:
Can these packages also be used on more recent distros?
Is there another maintained source of packages (to ensure no version-mixing happens)?
For us, the upcoming Ubuntu 18.04 LTS would be the most interesting.
>From personal experience, I can recommend https://build.opensuse.org/
which works really well to build packages
for Debian- and RHEL-based OS automatically after the scaffolding is in place.
