Description:I am putting together a bugmarshal test server for all the bug marshals to beat the hell out of patches and test fixes.  Does anyone want to donate to the cause?  Its not going to be anything to expensive in the 350-400 dollars range.  I have the colo space and since I too am a bug marshal and am usually in my office (like I have a life anyway :P  ) I can be at hand to reboot, beat the server or show it some love when things head south.

Every bug marshal will have an account on the box(including root access), and iax account and a sip account for testing purposes.  Also a PSTN line with unlimited LD to the US and canada will be hooked to this test server! ( and yes it has a 900 block)

Target is a 2ghz Celeron, 512MB ram.

Please post if you are intrested in helping me with this.  And in a few months we will try to add another test server.

I'm sure you don't want my response. :)  I wasn't going to respond at all but since you asked, I will.

I don't think its necessary at all.  The one thing that having a widespread group of marshals/testers does is provide a number of unique environments for testing on.  Different libraries, kernels, hardware, etc.  all can play a big role in stability.

If one server type is depended on more than others for testing we might miss some bugs.

Plus there is the root access issue we talked about on irc.  Once a group of people have root on a box (especially a dev box) you can't trust that the libraries/headers/etc. are the same when you finish testing something as when you started
