In the past, @elukey and I have worked collaboratively on the foundation's Cassandra clusters. With him transitioned to another team I expect to be more actively involved in the maintenance/operations of the AQS cluster, and will need more access to be effective.
The aqs-admin group that I am currently a part of provides specific access to certain commands (for example, to restart services), but many necessary things aren't possible. For example, running the CQL shell (cqlsh) is not possible because the wrapper scripts require access to root-owned configuration files (the files contain secrets). Adjustments to what aqs-admins can do might be possible, but I suspect this will be a tedious game of wack-a-mole that never gets it quite right. For the RESTBase cluster, I am a part of the restbase-roots group, with unrestricted root access.
