I don't know either, but I don't have a problem with you having added
Christoph. I trust the judgement of everyone who currently has sudo
access to useful their best judgement when creating additional accounts.
If in doubt, sending an email beforehand to this list is probably a
On a related note, I'm the only one who gets the "root" email (i.e. errors
from cron jobs, etc.). One a few occasions I've forwarded stuff to Ian
(because it looked like stuff he set up), but sometimes I don't have time
to deal with it. One thought would be to simply forward this stuff to
webware-devel, but that is probably a bad idea security-wise as these
emails could potentially contain sensitive information. Maybe someone has a
better idea. In any case, I'd invite a few more people to add their
addresses to /etc/aliases, just so I'm not the only one who sees this.

Wayne Larsen was active on webware-discuss about a year and a half ago
(around the time we got the tummy server) and he was interested in
working on a webware-based CMS. I created the account for him to use
for this purpose. I don't think he's used the account much though,
and hasn't logged in in over a year.
