This summarizes some of the external MESA infrastructure and who controls it.
We have the MESAHub GitHub organization. The members of the MTC/MAC all have owner-level privileges. MESAHub is classified as an educational organization and this currently grants us a 100% discount, meaning this costs $0/yr. Unsubsidized, it would cost about $1200/yr.
This is a long-standing domain name used by MESA.
Matteo controls the domain name (using domain.com) and handles renewing it, updating nameservers, etc.
The mesastar.org domain is configured to use Digital Ocean nameservers and the DNS records are managed by Josiah.
The email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org lists are hosted by MailmanLists. The account is controlled by Frank who pays the hosting fees (through grants at ASU). This costs about $100/year.
New account signups are handled by Frank, Aaron, and Rob.
The address mesastar.org redirects to the MESA marketplace, which is controlled and hosted by Frank at ASU.
The Sphinx documentation is hosted by ReadTheDocs. Rich controls the account (and Rob has access to it). This is currently free for open source software.
The original home of MESA development was sourceforge. Most developers involved c. 2015 or earlier have admin privileges. This is a free service.
We still use the mesa.sourceforge.net website domian name. The source code for this site lives at https://github.com/MESAHub/mesa-website. It must be manually updated by someone with SourceForge permissions.
This site will be made redundant soon and replaced with a redirect to the ReadTheDocs website.
Rich controls the Slack and pays for it (through grants at UW Madison). This costs around $130 per year (about $10/user/yr).
The MESA TestHub runs on Heroku and the account is controlled by Bill Wolf. It is funded by Frank and Bill W. The Heroku account costs around $600/yr, though its cost has been higher during the GitHub transition.
The testing log archive lives on a server controlled by Josiah. The marginal cost is $1/month, which he covers.
The Flatiron Scientific Computing Core
provides continuous integration testing for MESA via jenkins.
This was set up in 2021 by Dylan Simon (Flatiron) and Josiah. The configuration lives in the
Matteo serves as the point of contact at Flatiron.
We have multiple resources archived on Zenodo. This is a free service.
The MESA community on Zenodo is controlled by Pablo.
- The record for MESA releases is controlled by Josiah.
- The record for OP Mono data is controlled by Josiah.
- The records for MESA SDK releases (macOS, linux) are controlled by Pablo.
