0000740: Test drive/downloadable image
Would be good if we could offer a downloadable image of SiT which is fully configured.

This would allow people to try out sit without having to install mysql/a webserver/SiT etc

VMWare would probably be the best format given most people either have this or can download the VMWare player rather than going for a more niche offering which less people would have.

I'd envisage the image would be between 1G and 2G compressed, do we have anywhere we can host such a file?

The vmware appliances site is just a directory of images which are hosted else where, ideally we'd want to be listed there.

As for turnkeylinux from what I can tell its a prebuilt image which we could put SiT! on? Which would be useful though we'd need somewhere to host it wouldn't we?

Confirming this, so long as somebody has time to do it, don't think I do
