Update on hosting on OpenSFS servers

Colin Faber (Xyratex) and Chris Morrone (LLNL) this week began discussing the process. Chris has questions in to DreamHost (OpenSFS's shared hosting provider) about whether it will be possible to use our current service level. Will require DreamHost sysadmin involvement at the least, because the web interface does not provide tools for moving archives and such from other sites. Process will probably take at least a couple of weeks to figure out. Assumption is that this is not time sensitive.


Cory Spitz asked about the status of the Community Tree Development Contract. The contract does not have an explicit end date, and instead continues on a month-to-month basis. Pam Hamilton has been collecting a list of desired amendments to the contract under the Requirements section. Chris intents to pick up this work following after LUG.

Chris asked about the high level of recent autotest failures. Peter explained that one of the test clusters, Rosso, had problems that have been fixed. Peter will look into whether and any recent bugs will require folks to rebase their patches to a point after the fix. If we don't see mailing list messages about a required rebase, we can assume all is fine.
