#18 What I would really like to see "product"-wise

Is somebody (say the Mozilla foundation itself) offering hosting with the mozilla development tools (the ones they created, as well as the third party ones they use) and have the money go towards covering mozilla.org's equipment and bandwidth costs. In six months to a year I might be looking to be setting up cvs/bugzilla/bonsai/tinderbox on a box somewhere and while I could do that myself, I would rather my developers and I spent our time developing than worrying about what the latest stable release of x is and wether we should upgrade on top of the usual domain/network management issues. Hell if it were shared hosting I would consider it sooner, but as I said in 6-12 months I might be looking for a dedicated/managed environment.

If mozilla.org didn't want the headache of farming their boxen out then maybe try for getting rackspace or someone to offer the set-up with support from Mozilla staff in return for some of the profits.

Am I completely off my rocker here, or is this a stupid idea?
