"You" and "your"? I've mentioned my aversions to using second-person

C. Run ingest jobs from a networked computer that meets the requirements.

However, the sentence by itself leaves me wondering about *which*
requirements. Ingest requirements, network requirements, computer
requirements, system requirements, or some form of process requirements?
Since you say that the requirements relate to the computer, then the
sentence reads like it is saying, "run the jobs from a computer that meets
computer requirements." Are "computer requirements" spelled out somewhere
else in the doc?
