Sponsors Data Directory Admin Organization

Note that in the case of any discrepency between what is stated here. and what is the actual case on the UNIX computer cs-xh-admin.cs.private.uwaterloo.ca, the actual situation on cs-xh-admin.cs.private.uwaterloo.ca will override what is stated here.


The following table indicates how some of the data, on the UNIX computer cs-xh-admin.cs.private.uwaterloo.ca, under the directory

is organized. Here we present information about directories other than those specifically related to course-specific resources, and explicit researcher sponsorship. That should be "administration", but isn't quite.
