   - Please test your course workflows in advance. You can ask us to install particular applications (although it is not advisable to run applications your work does not use, anyhow) or to comment on your scripts.

In this case your accounts may be (temporarily) revoked, which would disrupt any course severely.**   - Please test your course workflows in advance.
