Sounds good. I'm going to be out of town Thurs and Fri but will be
around this weekend and can help then.

Actually our space and bandwidth needs are not huge compared with
today's capabilities, but you're right they coudl scale. More
importantly is our need for being able to easily upgrade and add new
scripts and tools.

Well, one approach I've been thinking of is to identify a 'master'
server where we conduct all document commits, etc.
We rsync the browsable documents, website, etc. from the master server
to one or more mirrors.
New uploads would need to be done on the master server for now. Some
day we can set it up such that users can upload files to the mirror and
have them propagated to the central server. This will be particularly
handy for folks in other countries, so they get a quick site to browse
and upload to (in their own language), and the clipart gets propagated
back to the server and out to all the mirrors in a reasonably short
amount of time.
