This week has been an interesting one for me with a lot going on personally. This has, unfortunately, kept me from some of my duties as a Sysadmin, but not completely. Below is a report of what I’ve been working on over the past week.
This week we saw the release (finally!) of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. We’ve started discussing a migration plan for the GNOME Red Hat servers, but this’ll still take some time. We’ll eventually need some help in testing GNOME services as they are migrated, so stay tuned here.
In addition I’ve spent some time this last week working with the moderators team. This is the (small) group of contributors that handles the mailman mailing list queue moderation. We’ve made some nice improvements to our procedures, but there are still only a few contributors on the team. If you’re interested in contributing to GNOME in a non-technical way, this might be a good place for you. Please let us know. Send an email to moderators@ or see the Moderators Wiki Page.
This also applies to any current list owner that would like to delegate their list management to the team.
Beyond that I’ve only been able to manage time for normal daily maintenance. RT tasks (accounts), minor user updates (ssh keys, etc), and server monitoring.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, my schedule has been a bit random so the next few weeks may a bit unpredictable. If you have any questions or concerns I should still be available via normal channels during the week.
