Submit a Proposal
To join the ViSta Development Community, contact
with a brief project proposal indicating what you
wish to do and how this will benefit ViSta's users.
Upon approval by Forrest Young and the advisory
board, you will need to obtain permission to use
UNC-CH's computational network so that you can use
UNC-CH's CVS server.
UNC-CH Students or Faculty: If
you are a student or faculty member at UNC-CH, then
you already have the necessary permission. Just
follow the instructions in the next several steps.
For those not at UNC-CH:
are elsewhere, then you need to get a UNC-CH
UserID and password. You do
this by sending me your US Social Security Number. If you don't have a
US Social Security Number, send me your Passport number. I also need to
know the country of the passport. I will then get you registered at UNC
as someone who has the right to have a UNC UserID. I'll let you know when
this process is completed (it takes a few days). You can then go to
to create a UNC UserID and password, using your name and the number
you have supplied. If you can't access this, you may need to start at http://www.unc.edu/computing/
and click on Email Accounts.When you complete this process you will have
a UserID and password of your choosing. You then have to send me the UserID
(not the password) so that I can configure the CVS server to permit you
to use it. I'll let you know when you are ready to proceed.
