The CSC's Executive updated the Machine Usage Agreement on 10 July 2022.

The updates are as follows:

  • A note was added that CSC Cloud resources fall under the same policies as the rest of CSC's machines and network.
  • A note was added that the Systems Committee may delete CSC Cloud resources when their CSC account expires.
  • A directive was added that all club reps read the Wiki page on Club Hosting when they become a club rep and then at least once a term for notices on that page.
  • MFCF was replaced with CSCF (when the previous 2007 version was published, CSC had relations with MFCF instead of CSCF, which may not even have existed at the time. CSC now has relations with CSCF more than MFCF.)
  • Various grammatical errors were corrected.

Note: Please do not merge this PR until 18 July 2022, to allow members time to receive the new version.


Update (@a3thakra) Adding the WIP label till to indicate that this shouldn't be merged. Feel free to remove it when you're ready.

The account is the responsibility of the members who have access. If the resources owned by the club account are found to be in violation of any policy/rule/law of any of, but not limited to, the Computer Science Club, MFCF, the University of Waterloo, or any relevant law enforcement agency, then the members with access will be held **equally** responsible for that action.

Club reps are required to read the [Club Hosting](https://wiki.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/Club_Hosting) page on the CSC Wiki when they first become a club rep, and thereafter at least once every term, and abide by any notices, warnings, recommendations and best practices provided on it.

Nit: seems like we have non-breaking spaces instead of normal spaces around all links, I'm not really sure why (and maybe we can investigate later) but I would appreciate if we used non-breaking spaces here for consistency!

Nit: Should we expand DNS into its full name, ie. Domain Name System (DNS)?

Eh, I think DNS is fine - it's a widely used acronym when talking about infrastructure or machine resources.

Also, the zone is csclub.uwaterloo.ca, not csclub.uwaterloo.

- Don't do anything illegal, damaging, or unethical.
- The executive team can change their policies with reasonable notice.
- CS Club machines will not be up at all times, and may crash while you are using them.
- MUA rules also apply to CSC Cloud resources.
Owner

I think it's worth expanding MUA into its full form, either inline (eg. Machine Usage Agreement (MUA)) or in the glossary of definitions. DNS is something you can google and figure out, but MUA is not, so I think it's especially important to be clear what we're talking about here.

I agree - MUA is a commonly used acronym for "mail user agent". It doesn't make sense in this context, but still. We can also say something like "the rules within this document".

The Systems Committee may at any time revoke a user's permission to access an account provided that a written (possibly electronic) explanation is given. Cause for removal of access to an account includes, but is not limited to, violation of the machine usage policy. In the event of a dispute, a user whose account has been revoked may appeal to the CSC Executive for its reinstatement, as per the [CSC Constitution](/about/constitution).
The Systems Committee may delete a CSC User's CSC Cloud resources when their CSC account expires, at its sole discretion.

Nit: User's should probably be lowercase, ie. user's

Nit: `User's` should probably be lowercase, ie. `user's`

@r389li under "Club Accounts":

The club account is subject to all restrictions of a users account, except that it is a shareable account.

Could we please check if users should maybe be user's or user instead? Thanks.

I think this should be left in - network bandwidth is still a limited resource, even if it is not as limited as the others.

I've changed it to user.
