What Chris said.

The memory footprint of our instance is 1.6GB though, and the VM needs
to be CPU limited because Pootle is quite a hog.

We don't have any particular distro requirement, and Python 2.4 would
do, therefore CentOS 5 would work for us this time.  I'm also not
opposed to Gentoo, for uniformity.

We'd like to make Chris the maintainer of Pootle, and I will be a
backup admin.

Dogi (on cc) is the current admin of the machine that runs Pootle.  We
should coordinate with him to move data once the new instance is stable.
