Jump to: navigation, search

Systems Administration Committee

  • Period covered by report: Jan-Dec 2007
  • Contact name: Howard Butler
  • Members: Howard Butler (chair), Norman Vine, John Graham, Gary Sherman, Daniel Morissette, Martin Spott, Wolf Bergenheim, Frank Warmerdam, Shawn Barnes, Who did I forget?

Key Accomplishments

  • Completely migrated away from CollabNet and implemented our own infrastructure, which is hosted at Peer1.
  • Implemented LDAP, Trac, Subversion, Mediawiki, Mailman, Drupal, Buildbot, download server, Subversion mirror, ...

Work Areas

  • Remove the wildcard DNS entry for *.osgeo.org, which greatly complicates and limits our infrastructure maintenance.
  • Continue migrating member projects who wish to have critical infrastructure bits like Subversion and Trac be hosted by OSGeo.
  • Continue towards single sign-on goal (we have Trac, Subversion and Drupal running off LDAP, need Mediawiki, blade logins?)
  • Keep the lights on...

Outlook for 2008
