DSA seems ok with us repurposing penalosa for this. I suspect we'll
want to reinstall it, which I can help with (I have remote
console/power access). Once installed, I can setup accounts for the
admin(s) to complete the configuration. If we want to move to the
debian-ports domain, I can work with HP to update DNS. I'm not sure
what the d-p buildd configuration entails - you should probably work
with the debian-ports folks to identify recommended versions of
sbuild, if there's any central LDAP service for managing users,
autosigning options, etc.
