I'm not opposed to paid labor per-say. I think the previous examples of
Debian paying TOs to do accounting is a good one.

So to answer your question, I wouldn't be opposed if we contracted an
enterprise to handle our gear for us.

I don't think it's something particularly fun to do and I see that more
as an administrative task, akin to accounting.

"Organising a miniconf" isn't though.
