Sure, if you have many projects and many users.

I was thinking of creating this service on the starship machine,
and just for the couple of projects that we need, without help
from BeOpen. I could initiate such a service, since it was one
of our goals when we have a more powerful machine, and now we
have it.
But without interest I can save the time.
