#776 duplicate Change debathena-metrics wrapper to use start-stop-daemon instead of daemon broder

Reported by broder, 13 years ago.


When I originally wrote the debathena-metrics code, I used daemon(1) to background the gatherer daemon. Since then, I've learned that daemon is not a particularly well engineered piece of code, and that in spite of being a little bit easier to use, start-stop-daemon is much better put together

It would be a good enhancement to switch debathena-metrics to using start-stop-daemon instead of daemon.

#796 duplicate -cluster shouldn't permit logins if there's no AFS jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 13 years ago.


The at debacle left some machines without AFS (because it was also taking a kernel update at the time), yet those machines happily allowed users to log in (while spewing about ICEAuthority, etc).

We should add something early in the X11 login sequence that informs the user via Zenity that they're about to lose, and then ends the login session.

#802 duplicate Look at unattended-upgrades geofft

Reported by geofft, 13 years ago.


It's possible we should be using Ubuntu's unattended-upgrades package (possibly with some site config) instead of our own auto-update, for all the standard reasons that upstream software is good -- the most important one here being that mistakes cause people besides us to get in trouble too. :-)

We should see if unattended-upgrades is reasonable for our use case, or see if at the least there are design decisions that Ubuntu made for it that would be worth adapting.
