 Before handling SSH (root) access to this machine: 
 * Make sure that the person really needs it. 
 * Make sure that the person already contributed to Replicant. 
 * Ask one other person that has SSH access and/or the [[SteeringCommittee]] to also agree on it. |

 h2. OSUOSL 

 The OSUOSL is the "Oregon State University Open Source Lab": 

 * They can be contacted on #osuosl on the Freenode IRC network 
 * They also have a 'support' mail address at 


 h2. Virtual machine in FSF's infrastructure 

 * The virtual machine is hosted in a server that is in their office or in a datacenter. 
 * Several FSF network administrator also have access to the virtual machine 

 * The 'sysadmin' mail address at 
 * The FSF system administrators can also be contacted on #fsfsys on the Freenode IRC network for more urgent matters 

 h3. Virtual machine specifications 

 The virtual machine runs on top of Xen and has: 
 * About 3G of RAM 
 * 1 virtual core 
 * a 10G rootfs partition 
 * a 100G storage partition for Replicant git repositories 
 * One IPv4 and one IPv6 

 * Trisquel 8.0 
 * The virtual machine may be using FAI and cfengine but it would need more investigation on that. 
 * The distribution seem to have the latest security updates applies. How it does it needs to be investigated by looking at cron jobs (it might use FAI for that). 

 h3. Virtual machine backup policies 

 The virtual machine is backed up daily. The backup procedure excludes the following path at the time of writing: 

 h3. git hosting infrastructure on this machine 

 The source code is in /srv/git/git-data/repositories and is divided in several groups: 
 ** Replicant source code 
 ** LineageOS mirror 
 ** AOSP mirror 
 ** Various developers repositories 

 |_. function |_. software |_. documentation |_. comments | 
 | authorization | gitolite | [[UpstrreamSourceCodeMirrors]] | | 
 | read access | * git:// -> git daemon 
 * ssh:// -> ssh daemon 
 * https:// -> ? (TODO: document the software/configuration) | | | 
 | web | cgit | [[Cgit]]| | 

 h2. Gandi 

 * See for more details 

 h2. Freenode 

 h2. GDPR 

 * For GDPR related inquiries, you can write to the [[PrivateContact]] mail address. 

 h2. TODO: 

 * Ask the OSUOSL about backup policies. 
 * Document public spaces like Freenode IRC channel. 
 * Do our own backup policies and do some backups ourselves. 
 * Contact the people that have some control of the resources above and ask for permission to mention them here 
 * Fill the gaps (mentioned with '?') in this page 
 * Look what happens when an account is deleted 
 * Fix the related issues in the "tracker": 
 * Move the entries of this TODO list to the tracker when it makes sense
