#421 Update environment modules guidlines
Closed: Fixed None Opened 8 years ago by orion.

I've put an updated version of the environmentmodule guidelines here:


The main update is to take into account multiple module implementations. It also shifts the system module install path to /usr/share/modulefiles (and out of /etc).
