In https://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2014/01/msg00010.html (2014-01-04),
I said that I would contact Cloud providers to see if it would be possible to
get free credits for Debian development. I also asked DSA if they would like to
be involved in the management of such resources.
Stephen Gran replied (partially on behalf of DSA, but that part was personal)
that he wouldn't be willing to be involved, in
Nobody else from DSA replied to that question.
I moved forward with contacting Cloud providers, and got two positive contacts,
which I reported about in
seems to have prompted today's follow-up discussion.
DSA expressed several concerns today, which I will try to summarize:
- I did not participate in the discussion after the initial mail on 2014-01-04.
-> I was in agreement with most of what was written, so I did not feel
the need to follow-up.
- I should not have contacted Cloud providers without informing them beforehand.
-> from my POV I informed them on 2014-01-04. They did not state back then
that they wanted to be Cced.
- Those credits would be Debian machines, so they have to be managed by DSA.
-> I asked them if they wanted to manage them, and was planning to ask again.
So, from my POV, the current state is described in
