All TCC documentation lives in the TCC homepage
structure, whose pathname is
/u/www/docs/tcc. This pathname is a
soft link to
separate partition that can be mounted read/write from
any TCC host.
Documentation resides in three major divisions:
The TCC help system, which is much larger than the TCC homepage. Eventually these two structures will be merged. The Help System came first; the TCC homepage was added later for quick access to the commonest information.
The TCC Internal Help System is a combination of
DocBook documents under directory
online documents in the TCC MoinMoin Wiki (see
Section 5, “The internal help system”).
/u/www/docs/tcc/ directory, and
all directories under it, have their
setgid permission set, so that all

There are a few core documents, related to internals of
the Applications Specialist duties, that live in

All documents integrated into the main structure will be under full RCS control (Revision Control System) to allow tracking of change histories, control over simultaneous access, and retrieval of earlier versions. The plan is to move to SVN (SubVersion) repositories eventually.
There is a “staging area” for material that has
been written and not yet integrated into the regular
structures, and there will be a check-in process that
maintains a list of all the documents yet to be integrated.
The staging area is at
