Hopefully seeing an effort such as this, which should go public well before 
Q3, will be a notice to Red Hat as well as to web hosts.  Of course, RH is 
known for upping the version of software they include and patching the hell 
out of it but not actually changing the version number, so who knows what it 
it is they actually run. :-)

It certainly seems like everyone is in favor of this idea.  We need to decide 
how we're going to formally "sign on".  Dries, that's your call to decide how 
we go about it.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
