Thanks for the update, Kacper.  I guess I didn't realize it was just a man-hour thing.

Hi Cameron,
I think at this point all the required infrastructure is available, so
it's not a matter of funds, but rather time. The original hub code needs
to be rewritten in some parts to fit into new environment.

Some of this work has been already done, e.g. Matt ported answer tests'
storage to rackspace[1], there's running.

Additionally, there's a very interesting project that we are planning to
use wrt datasets sharing: I'm going to adapt existing
commandline client in order to make 'yt upload_notebook' work again.
However, my time is very limited at the moment and I don't expect it to
change before September.
