To all CS instructors and teaching fellows:

The deadline for software change requests for the Undergrad Lab and Teaching
Lab will be January 6 for the spring semester.  Requests for software
installations received after this date will not be guaranteed to be
fulfilled prior to the start of the semester.  As usual, the next window for
changes to the labs' software configuration will be several weeks into the
semester.  Requests for changes to the labs’ software configurations should
be made on the department wiki:

Please take this deadline very seriously.  Making even minor changes to the
set of installed software is a major undertaking, and is not an error-free
process.  Last-minute exceptions to the request deadline in the past have
resulted in problems that rendered the labs non-functional for classes for a
day or longer.  In addition, with Rob out on parental leave until after the
start of the semester, we anticipate that it will take us longer than usual
to complete these preparations.

Please contact support at cs.bu.edu if you have any questions about the labs or
the software request process.
