Since you x-posted this to infra, I should point out that
this rule doesn't always apply.  Maintaining hosts is different
from providing public-facing services.  During the svn move
to minotaur, many bugs in our existing scripts, crons, and 
config files were exposed by the dns changeover.

Agreed "minotaur" is a very bad choice here.  Those files
are currently being served by people, and there has been
some talk about a finding more suitable place for them,
perhaps or somesuch.  people is fine
with me, but this might need to be mulled over by the group.
