Notes:

  1. Digits mean nothing and are just to make it easier to edit the weird wiki table format.
  2. If you have a column, please change your digit to indicate any preferences e.g. + ++ ++ - -- ---. You can use empty columns and add your name in the column heading or add more columns.

Sysadmin

  • Sort /var/www or Apache so we dont have to multi sym link to get dirs visible. - TAKEN - DanW I'll sort this, I think a simple landing page with links to the various bits of the system will simplify our directory structure somewhat.

*ftp access? (not sure if we need this) TAKEN - DanW - I can set up SFTP access, somewhat more secure than FTP See SFTP

  • SVN compatibility/capability with hashed files

*A proper Bug Tracker. This page will do for now, but it would be much better to have a real tool. - Bugzilla up

Bugfixes

List of fixed bugs in the commercial version of OpenQM (Current as of 2.8-10)

General Bright Ideas

  • point SORTWORK to a RAMFS mount, would provide very fast sort handling. (Ashley notes: Altering the SORTMEM parameter does the same)
  • A bit blue-sky, but something I've wanted to work on for ages: full Unicode support.
  • Construct a "High performance" benchmark and tuning section
  • Define a "core" of standardised multivalue capabilities that is implemented in all systems, so porting between systems requires zero modifications.
