Apparently this is experiencing some take-up.
Reports from Units
It looks like all power will be going off in the Forum on the 14th of April as part of preparatory work for the new student centre.
Topics for discussion
It was agreed that this would be a sensible move though concerns were raised about access to certificate files in the absence of an Inf Unit member. Toby stated that we were going to move from keeping these files on a USB drive to storing them in Wallet
It was confirmed that the newly created infcos workspace in the LCFG Slack channel was the correct venue for emergency backup chat. The MPU will make sure that all computing staff have received an invitation to this workspace and that documentation on how to access it is available
All units are to review the existing Data Protection statement for correctness.
The issue of the user information held by Drupal and whether it fell within the scope of GDPR was raised. This will need further thought.
It's still unclear whether now is the time to do this though there was agreement that it would make sense to do the server wires one at a time, starting with the KB wire. Concern was also raised about the difficulty of testing what IPv6 firewall holes are open. The Infrastructure unit will investigate ways of making this easier. We will revisit this issue every month until SLAAC is implemented on all server wires.
It was generally agreed that the Teaching Office on level 6 AT should supply stationary and kitchen items should be obtained from the level 1 admin office in the Forum.
The question of how we could make better use of the open area on level 7 AT was raised. There was general agreement that to make the space more flexible, different furniture was needed. The question of when the carpets in AT would be cleaned was also brought up. Alastair will discuss both questions with Martin.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday 14th February at 10:00 in IF-4.31.
