if you look at the infra ML, it is not full support like e.g. the mail
server, but merely
a "restart it" help. That was the reason for my question in order to have a
fully
supported service (upgrades, bug fixes in response to OS upgrades etc,
maintaining
the vm as such), infra might have wishes to the project.

I thought the pTLP was also there to help in case of OS upgrades and other
external
things that might affect the running whimsy service.
