Hi David,

I indeed disagree here. The admin team for our central
infrastructure (in contrast to e.g. auxiliary sites, staging systems
etc.) will always be a small & closely-knit team of people, with
lots of mutual trust & ideally personal relations.

There's a fundamental difference between sysadmin and e.g. hacking
work, in terms of accountability, auditability, liability,
reviewability, reversibility & the probability to royally fsck
things up. So applying the same yard stick to both groups will not

Let's meet in Paris & talk things through over a beer though. :)
