#409 wontfix ood-packages shouldn't require you to be debathena-root to work geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


There's a script "ood-packages" in the debathena locker that will give you a list of all packages with newer versions in SVN than in apt. It uses reprepro, which wants to be able to lock the apt repo while running, and therefore requires write bits on the apt repo. I'd probably use it more if I could run it unprivileged.

#411 wontfix We should honor $PRINTER, including in the GUI if possible jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 15 years ago.


Currently, $PRINTER is honored only on the command line (and the GTK "Print to LPR" backend). We should do something clever such that CUPS knows about $PRINTER, or at the very least we should propagate printer cluster info to CUPS.

#412 duplicate athena-auto-update should not run when the user is logged in jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 15 years ago.


We decided we don't care about machines being unavailable while they're taking an update. We should change athena-auto-update to run when idle. The desync period should be 2 hours during "low usage" times (2am -8 am) and should be 6 hours otherwise, to help protect against every machine in a cluster taking texlive-full simultaneously.

When a machine is being updated, we will touch /etc/nologin and switch to a new VT and display a message to users.

We should ensure updates run even on machines that get little-to-no idle time, such as quickstations.
