  5. Topics for discussion

    1. Proposal to move the request for the admin principal to early in the install process

      It was agreed by the meeting that this would be a useful thing to do, the only concern being if this would potentially make the obtained credentials vulnerable if for some reason the install process failed. Toby will investigate whether this is the case

    2. Should visitors be on the sys-announce mailing list.

      After some discussion, it was agreed that given the difficulty in separating visitors with external email addresses from those with informatics addresses, the small number of users involved and the ease with which users can be prevented from receiving sys-announce emails, the default should be for all visitors to be added to the sys-announce mailing list when their accounts are created.

  6. Items for the Computing Systems blog
  7. AOCB

  8. Next meeting

    The next meeting should be on 11th February 2015 at 10:00 in IF-4.31
