Update on actions from last meeting.

  • Alastair will discuss automated ACL management for shared folders on staffmail with Chris Adie. Craig will discuss with Neil and construct email to send to Scott and/or Chris. [Action Craig]
  • CUPS needs a service catalogue entry. Project completion also requires a switch to using the IS cups component, upgrade to the newest version of cups and some configuration moved out of live headers. [Action Gordon]
  • Produce Data Protection statement for database service. [Action Tim]
  • Improve communication with users - Would be worth having small self-contained workshops on useful subjects (such as AFS ACLs, Kerberos etc). Add to things this project is supposed to kick off. [Action Alastair]
  • inSpace - Problems with users tampering with facilities they shouldn't be with consequential effort cost to ourselves to fix up. Alastair will speak to Jon Oberlander and Mark Daniels. [Action Alastair]. Tim will deduct effort spent from inSpace allocation. [Action Tim].
  • Staffmail Migration - We need a way to automate the @inf alias creation for new staff, possibly via Prometheus conduit and the database. Craig will investigate what is required and likely effort. [Action Craig]
  • Staffmail Migration - Still not clear if out requirements for the central mailing list service will be effectively met, Craig will investigate what is happening. [Action Craig]
  • AFS - The "mountpoint db" milestone will be addressed in another project, Craig will add to the appropriate devproj entry. [Action Craig]
  • loghost implementation - George to do talk at next technical talk slot so outstanding questions can be discussed fully. [Action George]
  • Create a project to look at checking the strength of existing passwords on the KDC and/or checking password strength when changed on the KDC (at the moment strength checks are only made on DICE clients). [Action Infrastructure]
  • Create a wiki page for "devproj" enhancements. [Action Tim]
