Calibration Group Use of the Wiki Instructions

Now that NRAO Computing has completed the installation of the external wiki, JeffMangum suggested that we adopt the wiki platform as a general interaction tool. In particular, the wiki can serve as an efficient medium through which modifications to the Calibration Plan can be made. All agreed which this approach.

Several points regarding use of the wiki:

  • In order for Calibration Group members to use the wiki, each person must first register at Please let JeffMangum know if you have questions about this process.
  • Following JohnRicher suggestion, I have moved all of the AlmaCal wiki topics from my wiki to the newly-created ALMA wiki at Note that if you mistakenly go to the old location under JeffMangum, you can still get to the new location (the wiki keeps track of where things get moved).
  • A nice introduction to use the wiki can be found at PatrickMurphyIntroToWiki. From this intro you can dig further into wiki capabilities.
  • When you edit a page you lock it.
  • A file lock will time out and release after one hour of inactivity.
  • A file lock can be overridden (please do not do this).
  • Please consider signing up to receive email updates of ALMA Calibration Group wiki page changes via the wiki WebNotify function at NRAO Computing will enable this feature in the coming weeks (given sufficient demand).
  • The wiki has lots of plugins (like one which allows for an interactive group action item list) which will be installed over the coming weeks.
