With all respect to people who help FOSS projects this just isn’t something I would prefer. At least it’s not any better than someone else server which I would try to avoid. First of all they also might get into financial trouble, their hardware could fail and there no automatic backup of any sort, no SLA, etc.
Another problem of hosting on someone server is issues with permission sharing: should we all have all the passwords? Who actually going to have access to control panels and going to represent project officially? So there are problems with it once you have more than just one-man-project.
I submit request back in autumn 2016, but got no reply. ALso tried to get in touch with RH employees I know but again no luck. Sadly RH likely just too large to be able giveaway resources to random projects on internet that isn’t officially registered non-profits.
Few days ago I finally got reply from DigitalOcean and they agree to help us with hosting sponsorship. This is really good since DO efficiently the best we can get:[ul]]There is Team support in control panel so we can all have own passwords./:m]
]No problem with control transfer if I unable to maintain it./:m]
]Servers have snapshots / backups./:m]
]For $20 we could have 2 or 3 ($10+$10 or $10+$5+$5 droplets) completely different servers which is good for both security and reliability./:m][/ul]We’ll need to agree on details so I’ll ask them today for two $10 droplets and might be a bit of extra storage, but even if they can’t give that much we’ll at least have rock solid hosting for forum / bug tracker / wiki.
PS: Their offer for open source projects is on that page: developers.digitalocean.com/opensource/
