Hello,

In total, the request would be, for 2013, a budget of


  ** 8.000,00 € **

for this setup (plan is to start with one EX4 and then ramp it up,
thus we don't incur the full cost in the first months).


because installing your own Windows with Hetzner is a tedious if not
impossible task, or you have to rent expensive licenses, we are
evaluating
various options right now. Norbert is currently working on a donated
machine
to see if we can virtualize everything and if that particular machine
can be
used. There's also another sponsor offer available that might work out.

Therefore, I propose we hold off from this for the moment, and request a
new
budget when required. Given we have approx. 30.000 € unallocated for the
2013 planning, this should work out.

Well, in the request above there was also
1/ a couple of these EX2 to be use for linux gerrit buildboxing
2/ budget to get a Mac to do release on a TDF owned and controlled
box, which will also help for builbot when not doing release build.
(on top of the 2 I already provide)

These two should still move along...
Beside, I would ask that the above budget be 'reserved' until the
situation clarify. if we find way to do it cheaper great... but I
would not want to be stuck until next year because everything has been
spent already, nor would I like for us to have to dig in the reserve
for that predictable and anticipated need.

Norbert
