The actual maintenance is  about 1 hour pr month.

Coming back to this, it is likely to be easier to find someone if we define this "ordinary maintenance" better. I mean, updating the application takes surely more than 1 hour but that is "extraordinary maintenance".

What falls in the "ordinary maintenance"? Login to the VM, say, every few days, apt-get upgrade, taking a look at the logs and basic system health indicators? If these are the tasks then expanding the team with one extra volunteer will look less daunting than upgrading the forum to the latest version, which is made very complex by the extremely complicated setup we inherited from the pre-Apache era.

Note: I did read the companion thread too, but still it didn't get into concrete maintenance tasks.

By the way, Jan let me thank you in public for the infrastructure work: unfortunately, like all sysadmin tasks, if one does a good job it doesn't show since everything just keeps working and people forget that this is due to someone properly administering them.
