Galaxy-Admins was a discussion group for Galaxy community members who are responsible for Galaxy installations.

Galaxy-Admins was started with this email thread in April 2012. This proposal got a huge response, and thus this group was born.

This community currently continues on Galaxy Project Gitter "Admins", while the Development Round Table working group continues the more development focused discussions.

The Global Galaxy Steering Committee initiated a "Small Scale Servers" subcommittee in 2021. The group meets every two months (see Galaxy Event Horizon) to discuss issues and problems affecting local Galaxy admins.


The group used to meet up the third Thursday of every two month (starting February) unless otherwise notified, and irregularly at Galaxy-related events, such as GCC2016. The final in person gathering under this name was during GCCBOSC 2018.
