Request put in PLANNING state pending discussion
Action item for Paul to investigate getting GPFS on Nebula.
There is a solid need to have Docker & Firefly on lsst-dev and Nebula (if possible).
The group has no objection.
|Discussion re. system updates|
NCSA default position re. patching is that that systems are continuously patched (~daily). Have been doing so for ~3 yrs. Admin's claim this hasn't been a problem. Developers say otherwise.
There are plans to move to a more formal test env. before deployment, but currently, we lack hardware to support it.
If developers could have a clear understanding about what is under puppet control, the team is OK with this. Suggest also staying away from putting Python under Puppet control since some developers do use the system Python.
