What would that mean? I'm trying to be honest here. I like adding
features every now and then and would like to be able to try them out
without requesting anyone to do anything. From my understanding DDs do
not have access to DSA-maintained hardware. As much as I understand
the policy I prefer the flexibility of logging into the system and
hacking the application. I'm serious about hosting the application
though and the web site has a very good availability since 2008.

You know what I mean. As much as you have a hard time helping me
figure out the SSL performance issue as you don't have root access at
the moment I would be in the same situation vice versa.

That's one concern. The other concern is - as I mentioned (and nobody
commented on it) - that I seriously intend to open the service for
other Linux distributions so that the effort of taking screenshots can
be used by several distributions. Debian users would be able to use
screenshots uploaded by Ubuntu users. And CentOS users would see
screenshots from OpenSuSE users. Is there a case where DSA-maintained
hardware was used in such a context yet?

Vexxhost as a sponsor (also for other related projects) has proven to
be a reliable and committed ISP. And if performance is the issue it
looks like they pimp the server until it fits again.
