For non-emergency calls, preferably send email to the administrative contact. For urgent requests, the list of systems administrators is on Machine/sunjammer.
A shell account;
- requires a sponsor,
- is only available to core contributors,
- is only for when an existing public service such as GitHub cannot help.
A shell account makes sense only if you're already comfortable using ssh and the Linux command line. The SL systems administrators are not tutors.
Requesting a shell account
Fill up the following template and send it by email to sysadmin @ sugarlabs . org:
Username: <[a-z]+> First: <your first name(s)> Last: <your last name(s)> Email: <desired forwarding email destination for USERNAME@sugarlabs.org> Sponsor(s): <names of people sponsoring your account request> <intended purpose of account> <public ssh key(s), one per line. don't attach, paste with word-wrapping disabled>
- Please cc your sponsor(s)
- Preferably sign your request with a GPG key uploaded to public keyservers and signed by at least another Sugar Labs member.
- Accurately describe the intended purpose of your shell account. Insufficiently justified requests will be delayed by the sysadmins to request further details.
To change your password, you can visit https://ldap.sugarlabs.org/passwd . To reset your password, send a GPG-signed request to the sysadmin contact.
Passwords expire every 6 months. You will receive an email remainder a few days in advance. If you don't update your password, your account will be disabled, including shell access via ssh public keys.
To conserve resources, shell accounts will be removed from the system after 6 months of inactivity.
