Subject: Ultimatum: sage's trac and wiki
Date: Friday 12th February 2016 01:42:55 UTC (over 2 years ago)
Hi Sage Developers, Can somebody *PLEASE* volunteer to move trac.sagemath.org and wiki.sagemath.org to a VM on GCE and maintain it for a while? I've setup a complete Google compute engine project specifically for this and I'll pay for this indefinitely. The project has a machine on it with ssh keys that can ssh to the root account of trac.sagemath.org and wiki.sagemath.org. I can easily add anybody with a Google account to this project (though I only want to add people that at least enable 2-factor auth, since you can waste a lot of money if you get hacked). Why move to GCE from UW? (1) the machines at UW are not backed up at all! -- I assumed a certain student had them backed up, but nope; in fact, we can't even ssh into the VM host right now (obviously, I could get physical access). (2) With GCE it's trivially to snapshot the whole VM's hundreds of times for very, very cheap, and things are very easy to scale, and every person who I add to the project has full access to everything through a web browser. It's just vastly better. The other option is that we move *everything* to Github. I think that would be way too disruptive to do right now. -- William -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "sage-devel" group.
