Root is a smaller group within LUDD that takes care of LUDD's datacenters. They are responsible for maintenance, administration, configuration, and everything else involved in making sure it works as well as it can.

Traditionally root has consisted of 3-6 administrators that have been responsible for all computer systems including LCNet, mail, vortex, userwww, and physical computers in T1.
In 2020 this started to change 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 to recruit both alumni and new members to assist with operations.
in some groups we have or are looking for paying members that are not studying at the university anymore. These positions exist for people that want to tinker with systems in their spare time and hopefully assist our active students to help them learn more about development, systems administration, etc. Our hope is that as an alumnus you can dedicate about 1-2h per week to LUDD.
Apart from the core root team, these are the current admin groups at LUDD. Alumni members are denoted with brackets behind their name represending the organization they work for.
