 I'd say after +200 projects we will start to have problems. The first
of which is disk space. Shortly afterward (+300) it will be RAM (only
128Mb) and probably at the same time CPU.

 You're right. I tend to think that a good volunteer is a volunteer
that actually do something, even if he is not very skilled. My role as
a coordinator is to help them figure out how to DTRT. Guillaume is now
reliable in that respect (thanks for the effort Guillaume ;-) and Jaime
is doing a hard job learning his way (thanks Jaime ;-).

 I will be extra carefull not to let a volunteer unattended because it may
be a big risk for the integrity of Savannah, I realize that.

 My understanding is that he is very much in favor of this (see
