This was a NAASC workgroup that met between August 2010 and August 2012, when it was deprecated as part of the NAASC re-organization. Most tasks map to the new NAASCObserving Support Team. Any material formerly associated with JSG that has not been migrated to the OST wiki is given below, as well as the original group composition and task assignments (for posterity).

RESULT: Yes, we have one at CDL at ste-its.cv.nrao.edu. Dan Klopp (email@example.com) can install new software on it, or tell you what software is installed. Dan says: "It has not been updated since it was installed in June. It is in sync with the version used in Chile, RedHat 5.3 and ALMA-7.1.1."
