Infrastructure Team

From Teaching Open Source

Jump to: navigation, search

The infrastructure team will be responsible for holding the Teaching Open Source infrastructure up and current. Several attempts to coordinate such a team have been made, so this is an initial write-up. Ideally, members would have experience in administrating Linux systems, although newcomers are welcome.
