the Projects VM is now "almost" in place. Chris tries to do something to
the sudoers file to make maintenance easier for project folks.

Please try to log in with your OSGeo account for a start. It worked for me.

I have no idea how that machine will survive the onslaught of 16 eager
FOSS4G projects but we will see and learn... :-)

Meanwhile we need to find out which folder to put in our eggs and hatch

Best regards,

I would like to try to make it so that people don't need to be
sudoers for most everyday tasks. I am currently working on setting
up the VM for projects to migrate to in a sane way without needing
to have sudo access for every task. As a result, I'd like for
projects to hold off on migrating to the projects VM until
after this weekend, if possible; if I don't get stuff done,
we can go ahead and work without this, but I'd like to take a
crack at this first.
