  3. Report from Computing Executive Group

    Alastair gave a verbal report on the latest CCPAG meeting, the highlights of which were:

  4. Reports from units

  5. Topics for discussion

    1. Roles without a corresponding rfe role

      Neil commented that "This seems wrong to me. eg we computing staff have the roles "sysman" and "computing-staff" (as can be seen from the roles command), but as there is no rfe roles/computing-staff file then this ldapsearch -LLL -b ou=Capabilities,dc=inf,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=uk cn=role/computing-staff returns an empty list. Where as with role/sysman you get a list of us." However, it was generally agreed that this was deliberate but would discuss with Toby.

      Toby confirmed that this was indeed deliberate but there was no reason why corresponding empty rfe/roles could not be set up. He will do this. He will add documentation about how to queries roles on the Prometheus server

    2. Informatics Jamboree

      Alison will organise the computing staff talk.

  6. Items for the Computing Systems blog
  7. AOCB

    There's no central mechanism, for adding new packages to SL7. Individuals should just go ahead and add any missing packages they come across.

  8. Next meeting

    The next meeting will be on 11th March 2015 at 10:00 in IF-4.31 chaired by George.
