Just so it is publicly archived, as I said in private email this is not 
a real user. At least not in the sense that a person can log in. I did 
not provide any additional people shell rights or any such thing.

I created the user so the user would be responsible for the service is 
provides. As the machine (community2) only allows key based auth, there 
is no way to even get into that user directly.

In fact I actually kind of wonder if we should have done this through 
PMT, with tickets etc..

I thought I saw Dave saying something about moderator blockage? Dave?
