Further discussion on Drupal hosting

As time has progressed in this project, it has become more and more clear that Drupal is seeing increased adoption both on campus and at universities across the world. It has also become clear that a community based approach might be the best way to implement Drupal on a campus wide basis, especially in light of blossoming budget issues. This may mean that DoIT does not end up having a centrally hosted Drupal server, but instead helps act as a facilitator for getting set up with the host that the community decides upon. This brings up lots of questions however, such as will we all fall under one site? Will we use multi-site, will we have separate installs and databases or keep everything together? Hopefully, some lively discussion on this topic should help point us in the best direction.
