I'd love to run a small OpenStack cloud on the Debconf 13 LAN. The only
problem is to find the needed hardware for the event. Is any of you
coming with a car, and/or have some spare equipment?
GPLHost has a few 1U servers in the data center in Paris, though the
spare ones don't have much RAM. And I have no way to travel with them,
or even rack them out before Debcamp, or in after Debconf (for personal
reasons, I'll be very busy before and after the events).
