Paper Abstract

After encountering difficulties in coordinating the compilation of the daily SALT software log between Sutherland and Cape Town, and struggling to identify the configuration of the telescope at a point in time, a new, automated system to record and consolidate the changes made to the telescope on a day-to-day basis has been developed. This has resulted in a reduction of administration overhead, more complete and timeous reporting of changes, and a daily report that is consistently formatted and contains easily searchable metadata.
