Hi there,

:) Well good news is we got our test VM up yesterday - so there is at

The € 3000 is for the migration itself not for administering it once it
is setup.

+1 - we'll be investigating these as well but part of the reason why we
are leaving FDO's structure is to really modify the bug tracker to fit
our needs. I think we have a solid list of wants, some of them might be
currently incorporated into bugzilla some of which might need to be added

+1 - this is definitely one of the priorities.
