Lists, Groups, and ACLs

This is probably not a complete list. Unless specified, all e-mail lists are, but we're not listing the full address here because spambots.

  • athena-commiters - (yes, this is deliberately misspelled). The list of people who can commit to the Git repo on Note that our Git hooks also require that people be listed in the authors file.
  • source-commits - Commit logs get sent here by Github.
  • debathena-root - People who can log in to the build server, and who have access to /mit/debathena/web_scripts/apt. NOTE: This is also a PTS group in the sipb cell, and its membership is mirrored by the sipb-afs-sync service.
  • dslogger-report - Central syslogs are sent here, and "interesting" events are flagged. Probably more mail than you want to get.
  • bugs - This is a Mailman lists that front-ends the bugs discuss meeting on menelaus. The sendbug utility sends mail here. We should probably just give up and point this at RT or something.
  • suggest - "Suggestions" for Athena are sent here. Should probably be killed.
  • debathena-website - Set up in the SIPB cell for people who are not -root to be able to edit the website.
  • debathena-metrics - Mail goes here with metrics from cluster machines

Discuss Meetings

  • sysd_stats on menelaus - Stats are sent here weekly.


  • demeter - Also known as This was supposed to be the new to get the latter of of scripts, but that never happened. It mostly runs Trac, but also serves the update recovery hook, and part of the installer (since it can be referred to by IP address, and Scripts can't).
  • magrathea - The build server. Use the builder account to do most of your work here, except for upgrading/adding chroots, which is done as root. Old hostnames for this server include zulu, debuild, and mega-man.
  • drugstore -, where the repositories are hosted. Shared by lots of other Git/SVN users at MIT. I assume at some point this will be deprecated in favor of MIT Github, but hopefully this won't be relevant by the time that rolls around.
  • ffff-0000 - In the E19-741 server room. Does automated installer testing by installing debathena-cluster into a QEMU virtual machine.
