The physical build servers (those that will be transferred to foundation
ownership) will not be available before new year deadline (it takes time
to procure boxes anyway [and then they need to be base-installed and
physically moved to the datacenter etc] and the holidays will definitely
cause extra delays).

But that is not a major problem, Niels will transfer the build services
to VM(s) first and when the physical boxes are in place in the
datacenter, council can decide what they want to do with them.

Niels just said that he has no access to the TMO server, I don't have
access and I can't check with Ferenc right now but would be very
surprised if he has some access Niels doesn't.

So if someone tells me what TMO needs (nice-to-have and absolute minimum
separately) in terms of disk space, RAM and CPU cores I can see what can
be done about getting a VM up (we can discuss details of economics when
there is no immediate threat of downtime).

I can then give full access to designated person(s) to said VM who will
hopefully do the actual migration (since we have no access and our hands
are quite full enough already).
