OK, something I've never been clear on.  Does the ASF Infrastructure team
provide machines to build
on, or is it entirely up to us to get builds built "however"?  If the
former, is there something we need from them today that we don't have?  If
the latter, could this project acquire hardware and have it put in a colo
center or something, so
we have access to what we need?  Or can we rent time in a cloud environment
somewhere?

Sorry for all the uninformed questions, I've just been really out of the
loop for a while.  :-(
