Re: Demo server required for future development in mobile

Hi Guys,

I don't think it matters if other projects have done it.  If it's right
for the project, JFDI.

First, just ask Infra if they can provide what you need.

Second, if you need help making it happen, we can look at the targeted
sponsorship program as one avenue.  See

Either way, if you get a box/credits/whatever, you'll likely want to put
together a team to administer said box.  On the SpamAssassin project, we
have a group called the SpamAssassin SysAdmins group just for that purpose.

Food for thought,
