This is a list of various projects to do with UCC that people could take on.

See also StuffToFix

Projects which don't require wheel group assistance or machine room access should be marked with a /!\

  • Set up CoovaChilli on clearwing or madako to make Tav people use SNAP

  • WebcamArchive /!\

  • Put other stuff into LDAP, like coke balances, membership information etc. (see /services/ldap for a start)
    • Provide an interface for members to update their information in LDAP
  • Clean up the network
    • Upgrade loft cable - boots on the clip would be nice since it gets a lot of insertions/removals, also being plugged into a gigabit network port downstairs.
    • Test network ports
    • Update madako's freenets script so that it greps out Optus routes since they usually go out via WAIX but come back charged. Grepping for AS7474 from counter.wa.aarnet's .cf files should work, though currently we're working off the UCS route lists that don't have AS numbers in them.
    • Redo the firewall script, or at least fix the PPTP VPN's NATting to go out the Bright link.
    • Fix the SOCKS routing to go out AARNET instead of bright
  • Integrated monitoring solutions (instead of MissionControl and its spokes)

  • Fix ClamScan processes so they actually report useful, useable data

  • Port Phonehome to Solaris and Mac OS X, with useful plugins /!\

  • Work out how to restrict Firefox and IE cache size for all users on the Windows machines, preferably with an easily-deployable method
  • Write a new OpenID provider, ideally with version 2 support
  • Update obsolete software - exim (3) to exim4 on various machines
  • Charge for printing automatically based on /var/log/cups/page_log
  • Migrate to a less shit jabber server (this may include a more recent version of jabberd2)
  • Use the Spamhaus DROP list

  • Start signing outgoing mail with DKIM milter (depends on mooneye upgrade)
  • Install Laconica for users to microblog with, and set up an aviary (planet) for UCCan tweets and dents.
