So a couple of comments.
1. Would Cloudera consider sponsoring/allowing us to consume some of
those EC2 credits? :) I think Dan's work on image generation would
translate well to EC2.
2. While we have a generous grant from the folks at RAX, it's not
unlimited, and we are still feeling our way around their cloud credits
to make sure we don't have a ton of overages.

I am excited that Bigtop would consider moving stuff to builds.a.o -
but you also have a lot of jobs, I don't want to suddenly take on so
much that we don't have enough executors, so lets work this out in
small steps. Andrew and Giri probably have some thoughts here.
