Description

Following on from Robin's rt request https://sf.anu.edu.au:8443/Ticket/Display.html?id=84265 it would probably be a good idea for us to document working practices for getting new software installed. I've put some ideas based on Robin's email into a draft document at wiki:WorkingPractices/SoftwareRequests.

Via Aidan - easybuild is a tool for installing HPC software & setting up modules. The config files it uses are fairly simple - list of module dependencies, source location and command to build. Could possibly be a useful way to describe software builds.
