I am going to discourage pulling this to a separate location even in a  
testing scenario. It's important that we all concur that this is a  
solution OWASP is looking to implement across the board. One off cases  
never work! Before OWASP's infrastructure and technical support was  
moved to a central location, it was a hit or miss wether things would  
be working. I would like to keep OWASP headed in the right direction.

OWASP's direction is to build the Application Security Community, not  
setup services that are readily available and highly reliable.  
Motivation should not be the driving factors.
