Well, the question is, if we want to ever host anything other than the
html, like static files, pdfs, videos, etc, or configure any other
functionality, we may find the github hosting insufficient and a real
shell account may be a welcome bit of functionality.

BUT, since I'm so incredibly time-constrained right now, I'm more than
happy to go with GH right away if you guys prefer that.

I have made an 'ipython' user account on dreamhost and I can give any
of the core devs ssh access to it if you want, so if you prefer to
configure things off the ipython.org server, it will only take a few

I'm kind of partial to having real shell access for this kind of work,
so my vote is for going with a real server, but perhaps we don't
really need that much...
