There is no preference for any particular software platform.  In my  
opinion, the idea of "software platform preference" only comes into  
play if you want *someone else* to maintain it for you ;)  If you're  
the one building it out, I have no strong preference as to what is  
used.  All we ask is that you document your actions on the wiki so  
that someone could come along behind you and reconstruct or maintain  
things if they needed to.

Yes, please coordinate with Mateusz to put it on the same machine and  
under the same user account as the buildlbot.  I can also give you  
sudo access to this machine to install any additional system-wide  
software you would need to support CruiseControl/Ant/Java (I don't  
think .219 has any java stuff on it yet).  Catch me on #telascience  
on irc.freenode.net if you have any questions.

In absence of other SAC members piping up, I proclaim that Matt can  
do what he needs on .219 by decree ;)
