Albert Cahalan is the maintainer of a procps package, which we use for
debugging the XO and which I use extensively on the OLPC servers. This
package includes "ps" and "top".

I told him last week he could use dev for testing the new procps on the
AMD-64 processors. It is necessary for proper operation of crank, pedal, and
many of our other back-end machines that these tools work correctly and
reliably.

23:45 <cahalan> Is it OK to use dev.laptop.org for a few odds and ends? (no
real load) For example, I ought to test procps on x86_64 before a release.

tooth!
TEVYE: Very good. That way the whole world will be blind and toothless.
