Early in 2022, XSEDE will release a pure Python xdusage V3.0 that accesses a new XSEDE allocations and accounting database using a RESTful API. We will request that all XSEDE allocated service providers install this version when it is ready. Please reply to this message to provide feedback on the following two questions:
1) May we continue to wrap xdusage in sudo to protect database/API access credentials? This means that sudo must be available on nodes where users or administrators will run xdusage. If sudo is not acceptable, please suggest an alternate way to prevent users from being able to read the configuration file that xdusage needs to read.
2) Would it be acceptable if xdusage was ONLY delivered as a PyPI package so that it can be installed on a shared cluster-wide file-system? If not, we assume you require an RPM.
