At the beginning the virtual machine was was administrated by the FSF sysadmins (through cfengine and FAI) and and Replicant maintainers (without configuration management).

The Replicant maintainers now completely took over the management of the VM:
  • It's not using cfengine anymore and the FSF sysadmins do not manage it anymore but they can help in case of issues (See FSFVMRootAccess for more details).
  • We took over FAI which is still being used for automatic updates only
Future work:
  • We need to look if using FAI still makes sense and probably to find more robust ways to have automatic updates applied as FAI tends to also remove and/or replaces packages.
  • We are into using etckeeper for publishing at least part of the configuration in git.
