Just so my stance on this is also public. In general I also agree that
it is good to remove the PHX firewall from the mix. The biggest being
IP space. (think about the builders and such). There's also a firewall
there that we could re-implement ourselves. While long term I do want
to re-think our interactions with PHX but I can't say for sure exactly
what that will be. If, for example, we got funding to host all
non-buildsystem stuff in our new German colo, many of these problems
might go away.
I'd very much like to research the alternatives but for now I think the
search domain method would suit us well.
