Ubuntu LTS should not be an issue for the OOoWiki.  The software
dependencies for the Wiki are not so high.  It's currently running on
MySQL 5.0.33 and pHp 5.2.0, so that or newer is fine.  Any recent
Imagemagick should work for thumbnailing.  We should use this
opportunity to shift over to the latest MediaWiki release as well.
Beyond that... I can't think of any exotic requirements... just a
standard LAMP stack from the 10.04 LTS should be enough.  Terry...
have I missed anything?

Terry is the best one to recommend the virtual hardware requirements.
We've talked a bit off and on about the optimizations.  If we have a
chance in the move to implement things like Squid, APC etc, it'll
substantially reduce the current load on the web server side and thus
reduce the VM requirements.
