I've had some ongoing discussions with Phil but ultimately, like SMTP
for debian.org, these things would need to be formally accepted by DSA
at some point.

Amongst other things, Phil commented on the password situation but it is
ultimately up to the LDAP administrator to decide whether H(A1) hashed
passwords are supported and whether they can be accessed by these processes.

cilea.debian.org is just one host located in Europe - it is good to
start with.  Once it is all running, the TURN processes would probably
need to be set up in additional regions - are we likely to have
resources for that or is this something that would take resources away
from other initiatives?
