ceo is the CSC member creation and administration interface. It was originally written in perl by persons of mysterious-ness, and was re-written in python by Michael Spang in early 2007. The source-code for ceo can be found in git: csclub:/users/git/public/pyceo.git.
ceo can be accessed by running the "ceo" command from a terminal, or terminal emulator. By default, a curses-based menu interface is presented. Use the arrow keys to navigate; on many screens, pressing a letter will select the next menu item beginning with that letter.
Run ceo --help to see a list of command-line utilities.
Adding a New Member
After a new member has paid the membership fee and signed the Machine Usage Policy forms, a new member account is added to the CSC system by selecing "New Member" in ceo and following the on-screen instructions. The new member's username is to be identical to their NEXUS username, if applicable. For NEXUS users, the name and program fields will automatically be filled after a username is provided.
Renewing/Extending a Membership
A membership can be renewed or extended by selecting "Renew Membership" in the ceo interface.
Clubs are hosted free of charge. To create a new club account use the "New Club" option in the ceo interface.
At this time, there is no limit to the number of representatives a club may have, but representative accounts must be registered with the "New Club Rep" option, and renewed with the "Renew Club Rep" option.
Other Club Features
For access to features beyond basic hosting (ie, databases), one of the club representatives will need to email the Systems Committee to have this set up.
