Hi Helma,

You asked previously about what it would take for us to be able to run 
Cocoon on Apache hardware. At the moment, Apache has something like six 
machines, and these are guarded (quite rightly) fiercely by the 
intrastructure team, in order to keep them suitably secure.

There are a lot of projects that would like to have access to Apache 
hardware, whether for hosting, or for build/test cycles. In part, as a 
way to cater for this, the infrastructure team is building a couple of 
those machines to run VMWare ESX - thus they can host multiple operating 
systems on each machine. ESX is working, but they need to get more 
HDD/memory for it to handle more VMs. If we have needs for running our 
own stuff, e.g. having the latest Cocoon samples usable from the Cocoon 
website, we should make a request to the infrastructure team for a VM 
for ourselves, as soon as they have done the necessary hardware upgrades.

This would of course require us to choose an OS/distribution (never easy 
in a diverse community!) and then to maintain it.

Are people interested in pursuing this?

In the meantime, using our existing mechanisms, we should do as Antonio 
suggested - improve the notes on the livesites page, stating: Put an 
entry entitled [LINK] Blah into bugzilla, and answer these questions. If 
you don't answer them, your request will not be considered.

Or something like that. What do you think?

Regards, Upayavira
