Subject Re: ASF hosted machines - proposal
Date Fri, 16 May 2008 16:02:42 GMT
Joe, thanks for pulling this together.  Just a couple more questions -

For the vm images, do we want them behind a NAT or using public IP 
addresses, with the later being important in the request due to an 
additional infrastructure requirement...

Do we need to mention any network bandwidth requirements or projected 
download/upload amounts?

Also, do we want VNC access to the host and guest systems, or only 
access them via ssh?
