Actually, I was contacted just very recently by a potential hardware donor
that should have some pretty reasonable iron at its disposal.

I don't rule out cash expenditures on hardware in general, but when we're
seeking entire machines, I'd rather exhaust donation opportunties first.
As far as I can tell, they haven't yet been exhausted.  When we just need
parts, the main thing I need is a proposal that enumerates what is to be
purchased and includes a cost breakdown (or at least a bottom-line figure
including taxes and shipping costs).

I don't categorically rule anything out in the case of an emergency.  It's
been my impression that the situation with alioth is uncomfortable as
opposed to emergent.

Yes, I'd love to see such a report myself.  :)

Well, in theory, when a task crosses a lane of responsibility from
ftpmaster to DSA and back, these people do actually communicate with each

(I *did* say "in theory"...)
