Given the non-availability of extra rack space at XS4ALL, would it be
practical to replace one or more machines with more powerful hardware,
or is it pretty much maxed out?

If the latter then we should probably look at relocating the Wiki (which
I don't believe has any content best handled outside the US) to some
other hosting facility. It should certainly not be allowed to interfere
with the Cheeseshop, which will be a crucial resource in the future.

I'm copying Sean Reifschneider on this mail as the Infrastructure
Committee may need to take a view on this issue at some point.
