[Mageia-sysadm] rabbit sponsoring will soon end

due to various issues and private reasons, it seems we may soon ( no ETA
for now ) need to pay for rabbit, the server used for building
distribution, as explained by Rapsys when we saw him in FOSDEM. 

I took the opportunity of FOSDEM to try to find a more suitable
solution, and basically we need 2 things :
a server and hosting.

For the server, Bruno Cornec from HP who already helped used getting
servers for zarb.org and others told me we could try to have a server
given by HP as sponsorship ( they already do it for kernel.org, for
debian, etc ). We should just try to find the specification of what we
need and send him a email. 

For the hosting part, a friend of mine told me that we could find some
hosting ( like 3/4 U in a rack ) from a association in a public
university near Paris ( ENS Cachan ). While I discuss with them quite
often, I didn't contacted them on this point yet, but they already
provides hosting for openstreetmap and so could help. 

So there is no ETA for rabbit, but since it would be critical for the
release, it may be better to focus on this.

So if someone aware of HP hardware could tell us what we could need and
could ask, it would great.
