common location to maintain codes
The main objective of this policy is to provide a common location to place applications and codes that are shared by multiple users without making use of home directories or scratch space.
This policy requires each center to provide a common directory, accessible on all login and compute nodes, for the installation of user-supported applications and codes. The directory will be accessible from all login and compute nodes via the pre-defined $PROJECTS_HOME environment variable.
All individual projects may request a directory under $PROJECTS_HOME. The top-level directory ownership will be set to the username of the point of contact (POC) for the project directory. This user will have full access rights and will not be required to use any specialized account to make changes. The default group for the directory will be set to the POC's default group. A POC may choose to allow access permissions to a different group, in which case the POC must either specify the existing group to use or request to create a new one.
To request a new "project directory" the following information should be communicated to the Consolidated Customer Assistance Center (CCAC):
Project directories will be handled according to the user data retention policies of the center if the project directory POC ceases being an account holder on the system.
