Project:Infrastructure/Service Catalog

Warning
This service catalog is a DRAFT and should be considered a work-in-progress.

Gentoo Linux provides services. These are listed in the draft Service catalog. Services can be external facing, or internal facing.

For the initial scope, there was a focus on services where the Infrastructure team are presently handling the operations of a service. This does not exclude other services, which should be added to the list either now or over time.

Services deliver measurable value. Service catalog entries describe the service, define and help track these values, as well as how the roles are filled on the service, and other important service details. Some services are VERY big. Some are micro. They all at least have an identifiable lead, some measurable value, and a way to escalate a problem.

Services without an active lead should be considered as moribund. As original leads (staffer/developer/user) have retired from Gentoo, the Infrastructure team has historically become the default owner. This is not sustainable in the long term.

About this catalog

  • Why is it important to identify and catalog services?
    • Identifying a service means making sure it is tied in with the Gentoo's strategy and objectives. Cataloging means there's some place to come back to on a regular basis to ask whether it's still critical, can it be improved or changed?
    • Identifying both internal and external services makes it clear the entire scope of projects, and where there are services that seem critical, but lack operational support
  • Why is it important to identify roles and how they are staffed?
    • Important to know that services are properly staffed
    • Important to know if staffing changes, service is still staffed appropriately
    • Important to understand workload implications for staff across services
