During the all hands Erik accepted to help the Analytics team to test the GPU on stat1005 (more context in T148843). Since it will surely involve long sessions of debugging, installing packages, rebooting, etc.. I'd propose to give Erik full root access to the host for the time needed. Stat1005 currently doesn't do anything for the Analytics team, it is basically a spare host.
I propose to create a special group for this with Erik as only member for the moment.
