Re: Hardware Recommendation

My general feeling is that you can pretty much use any processor size
made within the past few years, and be fine. I would recommend getting
a dual CPU board, but maybe only 1 CPU for now. Make sure you have
plenty of RAM (ram is cheap), 512 as the lowest, 1G nice.

The biggest thing when setting up any server is the disk system. Make
sure you use hardware RAID5. A disk WILL fail eventually, and RAID5
isn't really all that expensive these days. Get it big enough so you
can store a nice long history of repos dumps too.
