operations smells

In response to my Developing a Sense of Smell sesion at XPDays Benelux this week, Patrick Debois has begun collecting the smells he finds in operations and sysadmin work. The thesis behind the Benelux session was that code smells offer a good vocabulary to help discuss code’s maintainability; and at first glance I think Patrick’s idea could start to do the same for system administration. Nice work Patrick!
