I am in favor of the above wholeheartedly - it is, implicitly, what I've
been doing with the single-server instances - like people.
we have people01 - which is accessed by people.fp.o or fedorapeople.org
when people02 is happy it will be where people.fp.o points to.
now - what about for services which have more than one machine
if we have, for example, x86-01 -> x86-19 - which are builders - should
