The university of Tilburg is currently hosting http://dc5video.debian.net, but 
they wont host it permanently. But I got an very good offer for an mirror of 
it, which I allready asked if it could become the primary "mirror".  Once 
this is settled, I want the hostname to be changed to de

Jeroen van Wolffelaar is hosting the source server, which he and me can access 
via ssh/scp. dc5video.debian.net rsyncs from that host.

One core problem at debconf5 was the video raid or rather the connection to 
it: the videoraid was not in the same LAN as the video editing machines. For 
debconf6 we definitly need a videoraid (with 2TB ?!) in the local LAN. And 
those workflow enhancements you describe below. And then we can rsync stuff 
from there to Jeroens machine (if that stays like this til then.)

I want personal user accounts on every video machine via ldap. I want nfs and 
gigabit-lan between editing machines and raid. I also want laptops with 
gigabit. And 80gb local harddiscs.

I saved all of /etc on every machine and we have some bits in FAI. I want to 
have a working FAI setup (at least for the clients) before debconf6. 

Do you agree ? Disagree ? Anything else ?

So we should request more machines for editing ? Or were two enough and is 
this a matter of workflow / shifts ? IMHO we should aim for more people and 
more shifts, i.e. editing while taping new talks... 

Do we need extra number crunching machines to convert files from one format 
into the other ?
