    4141The ExoGENI Documentation Tests focus on documentation review, and apply the following criteria for each document:
    4242
    43  * The document has been provided in a public location 
    44  * The document contains the required information.
     43 * The document has been provided in a public location, where public locations are https://wiki.exogeni.net, and https://geni-orca.renci.org
     44 * The document contains the required information. 
    4545 * The documented information appears to be accurate.

    8888
    8989'''The goal of this evaluation:'''
     90
    9091Find a procedure for identifying the software versions and system file configurations running on a rack, and how to get information about recent changes to the rack software and configuration.
    9192
    9293'''Evaluation Results:'''
    93 None found!
     94
     95No overall documentation was found that provided a list of software and versions. There is however the starting of a
