Do you already have a filesystem image or are you planning to install
from an iso? We generally host builders on our spare server freedom.

Do you need a separate VM for these? If it's something public-facing and
doesn't use a lot of resources, I'd host it on our primary server
justice which provides better SLA.

In both cases, you will be responsible to monitor and backup the
machine. Of course you can use our munin and backup system for the purpose.

Let's meet on irc to give you access and get you through the steps to
setup the new VMs. I don't have time today, but I should be available
over the week-end.
