Reports from Units
Neil asked if all staff should be testing Ubuntu or if this was mainly focused on teaching at the moment. Iain replied that he believe that the latter was the case at the moment. Neil also pointed out that he could not access the archive of RAT Unit meetings on Teams. The Unit will investigate.
Toby observed that the correct solution to the problem would be to enable IPv6 on weblogin.inf. He believes he knows how to do this, but is reluctant to proceed while access to the building is still limited.
Neil mentioned that he has a possible solution to the long-standing issue of staffmail users not having O365 meeting invites added to their calendars. It involves routing mail through an unpublicised mail server so he is waiting for approval from IS.
No report given.
Alison mentioned that, previous information to the contrary, some CDT desktops will need to be moved before the end of the year. More information as she has it.
George asked if there had been any more said about a possible return to the Wilkie Building. Carol replied that she had heard that postgrad students might be moving there in the new year.
Topics for discussion
It was agreed that in light of the fact that we are now all MS Planner experts, the long awaited presentation on Trello by Chris could be abandoned.
Neil noted that Whoseoff was still not working for him. In fact this appears to be the case for everyone. HR have been contacted but there has been as yet no response.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday 26th August 2020 online at 10am.
