Great, thanks!

The Venus installation looks simple:
1. unpack
2. python runtests.py
3. edit config.ini
4. python planet.py /path/to/config.ini

Where step 4 goes to cron.

Plus, I presume there are some steps required to configure Apache and 
planet.osgeo.org subdomain.

So, I don't expect there is a broad access needed.

Works for me very well.

IMO the former idea is better.
