Resources for Group Projects
Under the University of Chicago
Eligibility and Acceptable
Use Policy for Information Technology
, shared accounts are not permitted.
Everyone using the Department of Computer Science systems is required
to have an
individual CS account
Anyone with a valid Harper Account
is eligible for a CS account.
There are a number of ways users with CS accounts can collaborate:
Members of a group can request a unix group
be created for them.
Files can then be given permissions such as group readable
. Please note that world writable
not permitted, for security reasons.
We offer the version control system
that can help organize group collaboration. CVS can prevent users
from overwrite each others' changes, and keeps a history of changes
to CVS controlled files, etc. Here is a link to the
Shared disk space
We can sometimes offer a NFS shared disk space, accessible from most
CS machines, as our limited resources permit. Please contact
with your requirements. Depending on the size of this space, we may
be able to also back this up to our tape system.
