If you're seriously interested in having a drupal shop or other step
in to help handle this need, then we still need a proposal written to
detail what is needed.  Write up a proposal of needs and make it

I'd love to help to help with hardware, bandwidth, etc.  In fact my
company has a bunch of old servers hanging around the office unused
(we moved to EC2).  However, I need to know what is needed and how to
implement it.
