Haiku Web Infrastucture

This document aims to give an overview of all the services that are supporting the Haiku Project on the web. It aims to be a full overview, so please do add or change anything that is no longer current.


The infrastructure is maintained by system administrators. They are responsible for the day to day management of server and service infrastructure, and they are also involved with designing and implementing changes to this infrastructure.

The services are maintained by technical application managers. They maintain the software, install updates, and maintain customizations.

The configuration is done by functional application managers. They are responsible for changing the software's settings, managing access rights, etc.
