What do you have in mind?  Would you, bernie, and sascha take some
time to think through our infrastructure needs, and how to meet them,
for the next six months and 1 year.

My random (and possibly totally wrong) thoughts and concerns.
1.  Up time - At what point should we consider increasing the
reliability of key services through load balancing.
2.  Scaling - What steps should we take to increase our load handling
capabilities for:
a. buildfarm - Getting access to the correct hardware/OS/distribution
combinations to run buildbots and automatic image builders.
b. addons - Addons is going to be a memory hog.
c. pootle - Another memory hog.
3. Security Vs. Accessibility.
