Pilot FTS to PPS FTS

Looked yesterday at the changes that would be applied to the FTS pilot if it was brought in line with the PPS deployment of the FTS. In principal they are the same but the pilot has pre-release versions of the RPMs. In reality it looks like just about every RPM will get an upgrade so hopefully we will end up with the same thing that works the same or at least as well as the pilot. This will definetley be done before the production FTSes get the upgrade.

ETICS Virgin

Made a first serious attempt today to add a component into ETICS. In terms of software to be added it is very trivial. Just some scripts to be run as a cron to generate some web reports from the FTS. So after reading through quite few python stack traces it turns out I only have read access to the bits of ETICS I needed to operate on. Have requested more access now.
