 That's actually just enough for XenServer and KVM.  In order to accommodate for HyperV, Bare
Metal, LXC, (which we do not have any test cases in the automation suits currently) we will
need even more machines.  We might be able to use nested virtualization for the hypervisors
to maintain server count at ten or a little more than ten but we haven't explore that yet.

and master.  I think Sudha already reported on the list that QA is busy trying to fix all
the automation tests to bring CI on 4.4-forward and master back to 100% pass rate.  Unfortunately,
it's been delaying our effort to put this out in the public and let the community try this

So the board just approved a 3 month budget, but the new board will
have to take up the remainder of the FY budget shortly after coming
into office. Perhaps worth coming up with an estimate of what this
will cost/need and getting it to president@ before that new budget is
taken up.
