Thanks for the clarification. I would like to consider that once I
have the next major version of the underlying application ready to be
deployed. Good to hear that the policy has become so liberal. What
amount of lead time would be required to request such resources?

I'm not making up things though. When I invented mentors.debian.net
(yes, way over 10 years ago, heck I'm feeling old) I was told by DSAs
that hosting is limited to PHP code or Perl/Python CGIs that can
easily be deployed. :) WSGI was considered to be to complex to be
deployed and maintained.
