OSG Collaborators,

OSG Operations and Technology are planning the retirement of the BDII information service located at is.grid.iu.edu on March 31st, 2017. We have been working with WLCG, ATLAS and CMS to remove dependencies or replace the functionality within our HTCondor Collector service. This work is still ongoing. This message is to alert you to the upcoming deprecation date and to get feedback on any other existing dependencies that might exist to the BDII.
