I think I have reviewed all of those now.

I think we should use the resources we have available, and that
includes the Cambridge instance (which is hopefully less broken now).
Until the Xen Project colo instance is _much_ bigger than Cambridge, I
think we should run it here in Cambridge.

As discussed, we think this is a good idea.  In particular, it would
allow running stable releases less often.  (As a result, this will
produce a whole lot of distros-<distro>-<revision> flights.)
