A note on glexec from OSG Software 3.0.3

On Tuesday, we announced the general release of the RPM-based client, worker node client, and glexec (OSG Software 3.0.3). For those of you installing glexec, we recommend that you wait until our 3.0.4 release (currently scheduled for next Tuesday, December 6th) to install it. The installation in 3.0.3 works well on 64-bit platforms, but 32-bit platforms requires extra undocumented editing of the glexec/lcmaps configuration. In addition, updating from 3.0.3 to 3.0.4 will require additional editing of the glexec/lcmaps configuration on all platforms. This suggestion does not apply to the non-glexec portion of the clients: while we will update them, the updates will be transparent.

We hope this doesn't cause any inconvenience.
