Thinking about this, the idea of one person doing all the sysadmin stuff
was in the past and is now a bad idea. The bus factor should never be one.
This is old thinking of the bad kind that lead to the crisis preceding
the group-effort model of making new images. Ken should never have been
allowed to become a one man show. It has created a succession crisis
that has gone on for at least twelve months.
What's needed is a team of people, maybe four or five. That would be a
rolling succession plan. People could be added or lost without
everything coming to a crisis point.
How about some people who meet once a week on IRC with Ken for the next
few months to transition things. That way a list of tasks could be
worked up and all kinds of questions could be asked, because everybody
coming to this would have a learning curve. And learning curves are
lessened if they're shared.
