when I need to debug a problem on scf, I often need a debug version of VisIt.

I can see a bunch of recent VisIt releases in Eric's home dir but I can't read any of 'em due to permissions.

So, I have to tar up and fis into SCF and build, often an hour or more delay.

Can we, minimally, install visit release source tarballs somewhere on SCF we all can read 'em?

Better yet, can we install a debug version of VisIt when we install a release there?, maybe only for minor releases (e.g. 2nd digit changes).

This is already being done. On the closed LC systems the source code along with the windows, mac and Linux builds are located in /usr/gapps/visit/executables for several versions.
