We should consider upgrading a few of our workstations to Ubuntu 14 LTS to see how painful it is to run our scripts and DTT and DV. Better to upgrade a bit before we are forced to by circumstance.

I would recommend upgrading the workstations to one of the reference operating systems, either SL7 or Debian squeeze, since that's what the sites are moving towards.  If you do that you can just install all the control room software from the supported repos, and not worry about having to compile things from source anymore.
