I have never played Kerbal Space Program but watched way to many videos of
the program. I do support this grant proposal and think it should probably
be funded due to the modest costs but do have a couple of questions.

I want to confirm that while ckan is open source, Kerbal Space Program
itself is a closed source program made by a commercial developer? ckan
itself is currently not useful without purchasing KSP? The commercial
developer is also not able to cover the required hosting?

Would having *more* funds/compute resources then currently avaliable
improve things in any way? (IE Increase developer productivity, allow more
advanced features, etc)? Are you requesting the bare minimum, the current
usage, or with some plan for growth?

Thanks for all your awesome work!
