What's needed is a reasonably fast machine (preferrably i386|amd64). As churro was installed around 2006 and was at that time a "good" standard machine, I think that anything more recent is fine. Disk space might be a concern as churro has a local mirror (can't check numbers right now for obvious reasons, but IIRC disk space on churro is not that gigantic). Memory should be something above 2Gb for performance reasons (again, IIRC...to be checked on churro). And bandwidth is probably the most important : the more the better. As for network access, incoming mail, ssh (port 22), http and https are needed. We need i18n.debian.net to point to the machine's public IP. And, as you mention, a local, reliable person to contact in case of problems is very obviously mandatory. This is roughly what I remember. The ideal situation would be duplicating churro disks to avoid a full reinstall. Whatever happens to the current churro, having this handy as a possible backup would be great. For that, we again need churro to be back to life....and maybe this time have someone to investigate why it got berzerk.
