Documentation
==============
The ARC 6 documentation has been rewritten in a modern format and is
placed at http://www.nordugrid.org/arc/arc6
Please note that although the most important parts of the ARC 6 documentation are in place,
it is still not fully complete. If you have questions, please contact us!
Installing ARC 6
=================
We recommend to install ARC release using the Nordugrid repository.
* Start with the basics: http://www.nordugrid.org/arc/arc6/admins/try_arc6.html
* Get production ready: http://www.nordugrid.org/arc/arc6/admins/arc6_install_guide.html
We provide binary builds for the following systems:
* Debian: 7.0 - 9.0 (i386 and amd64)
* Fedora: 12 - 30 (i386 and x86_64)
* CentOS: EL6 (i386 and x86_64) and EL7 (x86_64)
* Ubuntu: 14.04 - 18.10 (i386 and amd64, both LTS and interim releases)
Future support of ARC 5-series
===============================
Now that ARC 6.0.0 is released, we will only provide security updates of ARC 5.
In particular:
1) No new feature development is planned or going on for ARC5 and no bug-fixing development
will happen on ARC5 code base in the future except for security issues.
2) Security fixes for ARC5 will be provided till end of June 2020.
3) Production Sites already running ARC 5 will be able to get deployment and configuration
troubleshooting help via GGUS till end June 2021. This we call "operational site support".
4) ARC5 is available in EPEL7 and will stay there. EPEL8 will only contain ARC 6.
