This machine is slated to move to Amazon EC2 no later than end of
March. I am doing it myself. The problem I ran into is one of
accumulated crust (for lack of better expression). There are a zillion
apache .conf files and virtual www sites hosted off that box, just
deciding what it still live and what is not is a big task (I don't
want to shut something off by accident).

I would personally be in favour of moving as much as we can to github
or whatever other place you may think of. The current scipy.org
machine bogs down randomly and apache needs a kick almost daily.
Whenever I log into the box to restart it - the load is in the 17-20
range. The scipy.org machine is actually an OpenVZ container living on
an underpowered (imho) linux box. Hence, I decided to get a large
Amazon instance with plenty of memory. At the same time, this is the
perfect opportunity for cleanup. If someone is willing to assist me, I
have no problems getting more involved into moving things and
reorganizing them.
