<nod>.  Yep -- I 100% understand your concern there.  Initial  setup is the
easy part -- the long term maintainership is the key problem in any
volunteer infrastructure group.  (Since I belong to another one of those,
it's the reason I don't have more time to give to this one :-/)

Paul, I haven't met you yet; I think real question is what can you commit to
and how can I help out so that your job is easier but you still come out
knowing everything you need to maintain the system we setup together?
