Who takes care of our various sysadmin duties? What are those duties, anyway? Who ya gonna call when things go wrong? This page attempts to keep track of that.
If the server just plain isn't answering, DNS goes bad, the disk fills up, etc. These people have login access. Other jobs that require admin access: editing the mailing list archives, adding or viewing mail aliases, upgrading software, changing Drupal CSS (?).
- Charlotte (Aeris)
- Brenda (apache/postgres stuff only)
The site-wide password for mailman. Add people as admins for specific lists, add new lists or remove/rename existing ones or change Mailman configuration.
- Terri (who is also a mailman developer)
(Clytie is also a mailman developer but isn't a LinuxChix mailman admin.)
IRC server admin
Ban people from the server, restart the server, or change server parameters.
IRC channel ops
Lots of people have ops on specific channels, like #linuxchix.
Change Drupal parameters, edit users' permissions, or create special content beyond what normal content editors can create.
(And by the way, what categories of content require this level of access?)
Fix problems in the website's CSS (this may take sysadmin login permission).
Fix Moodle problems.
Add content in Drupal
Lots of people can add content in Drupal: anyone with "Content Admin" privs in Drupal.
To get the list of all Content Admin users, go to Administer->User Management->Users and limit it to Role of Content Admin.
The current list is: gayathri, Carla, Noirin, Terri, RobynManning, kjh, akkana, katie, Lili, valoriez, lilandra, joh, pearlbear, webchick.
Add or change feeds in live.linuxchix.org under Drupal
I think people with Drupal admin access can do this -- anyone else?
Only people with server access can read or change these. We need to know what they are and who's on them. So far, we know about:
- coordinator, coordinators
- Sulamita, Akkana, Carla
- Akkana, Brenda, Chris Madrone, Katie, Kathryn, lilandra, Angela Byron, Michelle Murrain, Penelope Leach, Robyn M, Gloria W, Terri (admin), Valorie (admin)
- lilandra, email@example.com
- goes to the sysadmins (pl) list
Contact form recipients
We have several contact form categories, which go to different addresses. To see the latest list, Administer->Site Building->Contact Form. The current list is:
- Chapter inquiries:
- General inquiries:
- Media inquiries:
- Submit news item:
- Website feedback:
Mailing list admins
Admins for specific mailing lists -- take care of spam, approve postings, etc.
