abbot.galois.com is the current physical machine that hosts several widely used Haskell virtual hosts:

  • cvs.haskell.org
  • darcs.haskell.org
  • hackage.haskell.org

This page is intended to be the document that outlines the practices and procedures used to maintain abbot. Additionally, it may contain information about downtimes and upgrades.

1 Platform Notes

abbot is an HP ProLiant DL12 G6 equipped with

  • quad-core 2.40GHz Xeon X3430 processor
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 680GB RAID-1 filesystem
  • Debian lenny amd64

Most user-maintained directory trees are backed up nightly: /etc, /home, /opt, /srv, /usr/local, and /var.

2 Account Creation

Once someone has been approved for an account, the new user should submit three items:

  1. a preferred username
  2. an .ssh/authorized_keys file containing a valid public SSH key (password logins are discouraged and may be disallowed in the future)
  3. an e-mail address (abbot does not spool mail, so any outbound mail needs to be rewritten with a valid off-site address)
