Administrative tasks

Client release management

Details

Track VirtualBox versions

Track VirtualBox releases, and decide which one we should recommend and include in the client installers. It needs to work with our Vbox wrapper. Occasionally Vbox changes the API and we need to change the wrapper accordingly. Make sure you get good cross-platform test coverage; use the Alpha testers for this.

If a Vbox release fixes significant bugs, consider doing a new release of the client software.

Testing client software

Operate and maintain the Alpha test system.

BOINC server

  • Trac
  • Mediawiki
  • MySQL

I.e. how would we set up a new machine to serve as boinc.berkeley.edu?

Miscellaneous
