there to switch willow. For some unknown reason, nightshade lost its solaris-
installation shortly after or during the last colo-visit.
So the plan was changed in the following manner: We use yarrow as playground,
but try to speed up everything, and when we fine with it, we switch
*nightshade* over. I hope to make all changes to puppet (our server-managment-
system) during the next 7 days, but it may take few days longer.

it), so there will be no problems with non-running tools. At first everything
will keep running on willow and when you are ready you can switch over your
tools to Debian (if you use SGE, that will be very easy because only 1 flag has
to set – more details later) – for most tools there should be no (big)
