Indeed, and there is a good reason for that, called security.

VideoLAN has very powerfull machines, connected in a correct datacenter,
with a contract, that will outlive any single member.

Don't take it bad, but seeing the discussions, and the way you manage
your roots and services migration, you don't seem to care that much
about being correctly deployed, but to do it fast.

LXC provides service separation and avoid security issues to propagate,
and allows also reuse of VideoLAN infrastructure, if needed (SMTP, same
Web proxy, etc...). It allows VLC and non-VLC services to not conflict,
and allows people to have only access to one LXC.

I understand that you do not care about such security, but we do.

With my kindest regards,
