Or, of course, another option would be those members of OSGeo who are more or 
less corporate members could volunteer time of a member of staff who would 
otherwise be not contributing to the OSGeo effort.

And in defence of all those who are not developers, being a sys admin is rather 
harder than printing brochures or accounting. Some might even suggest it is as 
hard as being a developer. But we wouldn't want to listen to them, would we ;)

Cheers
