Hi David

This looks useful. And nice setup instructions. One small comment - looking at your setup instructions, I don’t think it is really necessary for the ccde user to have sudo membership. Or even a password. Other than installing the required python packages (which doesn’t have to be done by ccde), it looks like the ccde user is just “getting” and “posting” and sending mail. So maybe better to be unprivileged.

Note the same as true of the dhis2 user in our dhis2 instructions but I mean to fix that :slight_smile:

Hi Bob

Thank you, very valid comment. I'll change the instructions to reflect
that.

Best,
