A VM seems fine to me too ... we generally have better reliability and
maintainability in a VM than on bare metal, and that's worth an IO
performance hit.

We should definitely look at mysql master-slave replication - when I
poked around in the docs it looked suitable for keeping a "hot" backup
of the database server, and our databases are central to a lot of

This looks like a great list to me. If we go the stuff on this list
done, we'd be in a lot better place. I don't have anything that I'd
immediately place before it.

Beyond the above, most of the stuff we need to do falls into two

 - Enhancements to specific services (you can find a lot in bugzilla)
 - Disaster recovery planning 

Considering recent problems elsewhere, I think we should put some
priority on further reducing the number of people with login access...
get rid of shell access for, etc. I think Olav might
have a good idea of where we are with that and what projects are
