Sure. The list is open to all. ;)

I see no problem with being in a number of communities.
As long as you have time/energy to do so, more power to you. ;)

Well, the big hurdles with this project were mentioned in the previous
thread. To my mind the first big problem is getting mod_passenger
packaged, and thats something that you may not have much control over.
(It will be done when it's done).
Next would be making sure that there's a group of people who know how
to manage/maintain/operate things so that after the summer is over
there's not a abandonded proof of concept no one can use. ;)
