This we cannot do.  We have very limited bandwidth available at all of
our colo providers. We could not even guarantee you 5Mb/s. Sorry, but we
just do not have the ability to give you anywhere near what ou ask for.

Your VM would be on a host shared with at least 20 other VMs,
guaranteeing this level of resource would likely impact other VMs
significantly, so we wouldn't do this.  We'd likely have to procure a
machine dedicated to the task, which in itself is possible (although we
have now missed the budgeting process, so would have to go to the board
cap in hand). But the bandwidth requirement is a major blocker which we
cannot resolve for you.

Is IRC not good enough for you? We do not run a jabber service here, and
to deploy one right now would be a rather non-trvial task for just two

What is one of these?  Never heard of an RSS 'channel' - do you mean an
RSS feed?  You are free to create one of these yourselves, and add it to
you site as you see fit, this is not something infra would do for you.

Such as? We dont officially support anything like this.  The ASF has
several official registered IRC channels, but we do not run any services
oursevles. Most communities look after this requirement internally.

I suspect the answer is no, not directly anyway. We just simply do not
have the resources available for you. I'm fairly sure this was discussed
sometime ago too when a similar request was made for a VM/server to run
the service on.
