As I have been saying quite a few times over the last weeks: We have
added several new machines to the DVD msync, but a) wanted to get out
5.4 first and b) need to see if we have enough machines to satisfy
everyone on here - syncing the DVDs isn't a real problem *except* in
times of release. It's not that they change afterwards :)

So yes, we need to see if we have enough machines or if we close at
least the msync machines for the general public - then offering DVDs
shouldn't be a problem, but we would need ACLs for *everybody* syncing

So yes, there still are a few things which need discussion :)
