It is now possible to use jython as a front end to the admin interface of dCache. This should make scripting administration tasks much easier (well, for those who use python). Ideally I would like to see tools provided that use this interface in order to carry out common task, like adding pools, pool groups, links, changing mover queues etc. Hopefully these will be made available over time, either from the developers or through community contributions. You can find an example of a script at the page below (no, it's not a typo). I've already started working on something.
