Server Terminology

May First/People Link distinguishes between two types of servers:

MOSH
MOSH servers refer to any server running a predefined set of services including (http, imap, pop, smtp, submission). These servers are generally accessible by numerous members via ssh and provide multiple uses for members.
PITS
PITS are *not* MOSH servers. They are Physical, Internal, Transitional or Specialized. Members generally do not have direct shell access to these servers.

Server-specific Notes

MF/PL sets up systems that work across servers as a rule, but in certain cases a server may need to strike out on its own for a time with technology approaches that are not yet standardized. This section is for recording these set-ups, which may become the standard approach of the future.
