Thanks for the insight, Keith!
These prices look reasonable for rented servers. Question is rather
1) are the servers in X.org's possession or rented
2) why we had this many servers at all
3) why are 3U servers needed (drives, or are they just in the possession
of Xorg - in that case buing some new cheaper to host hardware might
Going forward it's probably a good thing that we have enough server
power, and I assume it's just the good ol' "nobody has any time left to
work on that" issue. :-/
Matthias, being a perfect example of the later
