Great.  Does Remora provide its own mechanism for synchronizing the
files, or do we have to call rsync from a cron job?

Sounds like a good plan to me.  Ok, let's move in that direction.

I guess the first step would be selecting and customizing a base OS
image that we could unpack to quickly create new VMs.  iirc, Sascha had
done it already on bender.

Whenever there's no compelling reason to prefer a particular Linux
distro, we could keep installing Ubuntu 64bit on our VMs for consistency
with Sunjammer and Solarsail.
