For me this is a daily issue. My colleagues usually are happy to just get a quick test procedure; usually on smallish data. Chances are it pattern matches some noise. But nobody will find out as reading what a classifier found is near impossible. I mean sure we weed out all the nonsensical predictor variables – but even on the sensibel there is additional information mixed in.
As I was checking whether the uibk would offer us some storage for git projects I was positively surprised they run a full gitlab instance.
Unfortunately we will be limited to 50 projects - so I will not be able to abandon my bitbucket account. Anyway nice to be able to host potentially sensitive stuff internal.
Also they run mattermost - now that looks very interesting. Chatting without going through american services… Need to get my friends in there.
Having most of my workflow on the commandline mailing my results using Tunderbird or Mail.app is sometimes quite a chore. I would rather do it from inside my workflow. mutt seems like a natural option.
