Hi Mats,

Thanks for your offer.

I hereby forward your email to the PSC, who is in charge of reacting on
these kind of requests... there is just too much communication going on
to see everything...

But in general: it's not hardware that is a 'problem'. It is

Note, we have:

And http://demo.qgis.org/ which runs QGIS-Server in docker containers

We could setup something like that on your server too?

So personally speaking: it is best if you provide (also) man-hours to do

BUT if there is somebody listening who wants to offer "Windows time or

Please let us or Mats know!
