I have some idle bandwidth. Enough for testing and/or low volume usage.
I'm not sure how much hardware has to be thrown at this - seems that
if it can run a Ubuntu Server install at a reasonable rate, it should be
sufficient. In that case, yes, I do have some hardware I can make use
of - though I'm probably looking at a new server soonish anyways.

I'm sure we can find/arrange space. But I'm not sure if "workshop" is
quite the right term. :) I think it would be more of a work effort -
i.e. our effort to try to get the thing running. But that seems like a
cool sort of mentoring/knowledge sharing session.

I can spearhead this (coordinate with the exec, book rooms, etc) if
there is enough interest.
