Traditionally root has consisted of 3-6 administrators that have been responsible for all computer systems including LCNet, mail, vortex, and all physical servers in T1.
In 2020 and 2024 we introduced changes in an attempt to involve more members in the administration of LUDD:s systems. This change is partly because there are more areas to administrate than before, but also to make sure that not only 3-6 people get to have all the fun!
For this purpose we have admgroups. We hope that every aspiering root will find something they find appeling.
