Special topics

Jürgen: Treatment of syntax changes

Local admins are worried that syntax changes or changes in human-oriented output may break their scripts or are just not wanted.

After discussion, we agree that human-oriented output and syntax can change any time (while of course needing documentation). Admins should get their status information through machine-oriented channels and request anything not available there through the normal channels.

Dmitry / Tigran: NFS

We discuss the ongoing issues with staging files.
