If we are going to require redundancy, I think we should do it better
- at least two buildd administrators
- systems located in at least two different facilities (different
cities and backbones if at all possible)
This allows the buildd administrator to take vacations, etc.
This allows for redundancy in case of fire, flood, earthquake etc.
