Operational Meeting Research and Teaching Unit Report - 09 July, 2014
The latest unit minutes are available on the DICE Wiki
- mod_wsgi Update
This fixes a local privilege execution issue. I don't think the default RHEL stream will include this fix any time soon, but anyone including
<dice/options/apacheconf-wsgi.h> will be covered by our own build.
- New Components
Fresh out of the sausage factory, you can now control
mongodb by component.
- (long overdue) Commodity Trac Provision
Remember that, like the RAT Unit, you too can have your own Trac with the
trac-server.h header (and a healthy sprinkling of definitions). It'll also support a PostgreSQL backend (like the RAT Unit Trac) but that's a bit more hassle.
- Moving Effort
In case anyone is counting -- we've made a quick estimate of RAT moving effort at 10 days FTE, not counting organisational effort.
- anderson & morris
These machines have been set up as KVM servers, notably hosting self-managed guests for their owner. In effect this allows us to host self-managed desktop machines despite the restrictions in the SMSR!
- PostgreSQL Upgrades
This week will see burly and shortbread upgraded to PostgreSQL 9.3 from 9.2. We'll still update 9.2 packages — until 9.4 is released.
