Subject Re: Cloud services inquiry for Google Summer of Code project

Lewis, 

Yes, we do have a cloud services budget, but it is quiet modest.  It won't get you months
of high cpu/high ram. 
Before we elected to authorise the cost we'd likely want a much clearer image of what is required,
and for how long. 

I have cc'd infrastructure-dev for now.
