IIRC, the overwhelming reason we stopped using it before was because  
of hosting issues -- spotty networking, hardware failures, poor colo  
support, etc. We shouldn't have any of these problems, now. If we do  
run into problems, they should now be fixable. I have no reason to  
favor Hudson/Continuum over AHP. So, if we can get AHP running easily,  
I'm all for it. There's only one potential issue, that I'm aware of.

We previously had an Open Source License issued for our use of  
Anthill. Here's some of the old discussion --

Although the board was aware of our usage of AntHill, since we weren't  
running AntHill on ASF hardware, I'm not sure the license was fully  
vetted by Infra. I don't see any issues, but I'll want to run this by  

Jason D, will the existing license cover the version of AntHill that  
we'll want to use? I'll run the license by Infra and will also  
describe the issue for review by the Board, in our quarterly report.

IMO, I'd proceed with the assumption that we'll be using AHP. Just  
don't install it on Apache hardware, yet.
