I’d hate to see a weeks worth of data gathering going out the door, because someone else decides to do some testing on a system that is already in use…  And if some are going to be dedicated to a specific test/gathering/building/etc., they should be noted and prevented from being used for testing

I thought of that.  Part of the answer is: "watch #ntpsec". Dev accounts have
a hook that report logins and logouts.  I don't know how to handle longer-term
reservations yet.  I'm hoping that is everybody watches IRC and takes reasonable
precautions we can avoid conflicts.
