We'll quickly run up against our limits I think after a few of these
requests and we'll end up hosting things we may have to 'correct' later.
I'd think that unless they're officially "part of fedora" as in,
involved is a member of the Infrastructure team, doing it the
infrastructure way with our puppet config. We won't be correcting
anything. I'd have to insist on that. This secondary hosting would very
much be a second class citizen with the people requesting it basically
being on their own.
I'd say we could provide managed xen guests but not just
box, have fun" hosts.
Define "managed". Would it have our account system? If so would they
have access to the encrypted passwords of the sysadmin-main members?
