Infrastructure Upgrade




     As part of an infrastructure upgrade, user home directories will change
from the existing /u/*/username hiearchy to /home/username.  This may require
adjustment in scripts that you have if you used /u/*/username rather than
~username to address files in your home directory.

     The reason for doing this is to bring it into compliance with modern Linux
conventions so tools will work out of the box and because the original reason
for doing so, SunOS machines didn't effeciently search large directories, is no
longer relevant.
