The problem is that the ASF do not want to host and provide services of 
special software for single projects. I can understand this as even the 
ASF infra is a team of volunteers and their time is limited as it is for 
all others.

Furthermore, I don't know details about the VM setup and where it's 
detailed located. Do you?

However, I like your idea. It requires indeed only a bit diskspace and 
internet access. The maintainance could be done by us, the project 
members. If you would share a bit of your knowledge then I could 
takeover the admin role. ;-)

Has anybody an idea about where to host this service? It doesn't need to 
be necessarily inside the ASF.

Great, thanks a lot.
