Volunteer Search: Systems Committee

Job: Systems Committee Member

Description: Systems is looking for a few additional committee members to help with backend support, keeping the operating system and the application software up and running.

We are currently using Debian, but if you are otherwise competent with Unix, knowing Debian specifically isn't a requirement. The software packages we administer are: Mailman, Apache2, Mongrel, Rails, Drupal, Mediawiki, Postfix, mySQL, Awstats, Nagios, Request Tracker, rsnapshot, S3Sync and Logwatch. Experience installing, configuring and troubleshooting any of these would be good—you need not know them all. Apache would be a huge bonus.

We are also looking for a systems architect. If you have experience in this area, please contact us!

Estimated Time Involved: You should figure an average of three hours a week, including a weekly chat meeting, but the works tends to come in bursts—nothing for a while, and then many things all at once. Obviously, the more people we have, the more we can spread tasks out, and reduce the workload for all.

The length of commitment is up to you, and we encourage staffers to take breaks from the Org when they need them. If you think you can offer us a few months, we'll take them!
