I still think the major part of the problem is that pgFoundry was
implemented outside the web/sysadmin teams, and had exactly zero
documentation, yet when something goes wrong, it's one of us that ends
up trying to resolve the problems with little clue about how it all
works.

With Guillaume re-building the entire VM from the ground up, fully
involving the sysadmin team and doing so within our management
processes, I for one will feel far more confident about managing it as
'just another VM'.

Which reminds, me - I need to do a bunch of VM upgrades...
