For general information about the SIG, please visit the SIG's web-page.
Here is a list of beginner tasks that new SIG members should complete before or soon after their first SIG meeting. The Linux guides should give new members without prior experience a good walk through of the base knowledge they will need to build upon to do more advanced work. Everyone who wishes to contribute MUST at least sign up the email of their choosing to the SysAdmin mailing list. This list will be used as the primary means of collaborative communication between SIG members about current and planned work as well as the central contract point for automatically generated service emails.
This is a list of miscellaneous projects and tasks that are meant to expand and improve ACM systems and services or to promote individual interests in computer systems, but currently exist only has initial ideas thus the incubator. Individual projects get their own pages with descriptions of the task, purpose, possibly prior progress made, and research done. If such a page does not exist yet for a project or task then login and make one, just remember to keep the project or tasks page on the wiki updated and linked to any other relevant wiki pages. Follow the link format of the previously created pages when making new project pages here so that they are in the proper wiki namespace.
When an individual wants to pick up a project from the incubator they should:
For projects that currently have members:
Projects that are then active should now be turned flushed out into tasks and managed in Kanboard, and should then have a note added next to their entry. Don't forget that any resulting project documentation should still end up on the wiki. When the project is completed, the project page should be 'renamed' into the 'projects_done' namespace and its project page updated with the results and findings. Projects that are dissolved should be moved into the 'projects_dead' namespace and include an explanation on the project page for historic reasons.
Items here are usually too small for warrant an entire project or are fully describable in just one line
