No, not really - we're scheduled to get more power at OSU OSL in the
late fall timeframe.  That said, I don't think it makes sense to delay
it until then if we can, plus we've been discussing a smaller co-lo
facility for build boxes off and on in the past.  So, I think we're
willing to take this on.

The infra team strongly prefers Ubuntu, so if it's possible for the G
community members to investigate whether Ubuntu would satisfy their
needs, then infrastructure can start doing the ground work for
procuring the machines.  -- justin
