- By invitation, but get in touch with the coordinators if you're interested in system administration. Typically, you can start with taking over maintenance of a FSFE service.
- Principal mailing list
https://lists.fsfe.org/mailman/listinfo/system-hackers (invitation only)
- The system hackers team is a trusted group of individuals taking responsibility for the low level infrastructure of the FSFE, including our host servers and services running on their respective virtual machines.
Structure and communication
The System Hackers teams consists of two different sub groups: Service Maintainers and System Administrators. Maintainers take care of one or two services, often Docker containers or separated servers, while Administrators have access to multiple hosts and therefore bear much more responsibility.
The mailing list is the central communication channel for the whole team. We use it to discuss new development, potential changes and existing issues. It is also a point for other FSFE people to ask in case of technical problems or uncertainties and some automatic system messages so members should accommodate to ~2-3 messages a day. It is especially important that service maintainers keep track of new messages to be aware of changes in the infrastructure or new requirements.
We also have an OTRS queue for our team in which we reply to technical question and inquiries. If you would like to help answering them and getting a deeper understanding of the FSFE's infrastructure, please ask us for an account.
Security and Privacy
We set the highest standards to the security and uptime of servers and services. However, as a team mostly run by volunteers, we cannot give any guarantee. If you think we should improve in certain areas, please get in touch with us.
All team members – no matter which sub-group, whether volunteer or employee – are required to sign a Server Access Agreement in order to legally secure data of the FSFE and users of its technical services.
TechDocs -- An user-oriented overview of technical services the FSFE offers with links to documentation and help
Services -- An overview of all technical services run by the FSFE with maintainers, priority, and some pointers to documentation
TechnicalProcesses -- A collection of processes and tasks for system hackers. This is the primary place to store such documentation.
documentation -- A Git repository storing all technical documentation about servers and services which aren't processes. documentation.fsfe.org is the pretty-generated website for all its content. Both resources are only available to certain user groups.
