The plan sounds good to me.  I think it would be prudent to extend an
account and sudo access on osgeo1 to you as well so that you can do
your own mysql dumps, etc.   I will make such a motion on the SAC list.

I'd suggest you write up the plan a bit in the wiki, and work with
Howard and/or Shawn on dns changes.
