First, I'd like to say thanks to all of you for maintaining the
debian.org infrastructure. As a fellow sysadmin, I know how little
visibility we have, except when things go wrong.

Do you have any thoughts on monitoring of «associated machines»? I'm
thinking of Alioth and perhaps non-DSA-managed porter boxes. Being able
to piggy-back on your monitoring setup might be worthwhile, but requires
you to be willing to do the legwork to make it possible. I'm of course
thinking of having alerts sent to the local admin rather than DSA.
