Sounds like a great idea; as you state, I think it is important to
have a voice for the more conservative server side in Fedora to
counterpoint the fast-moving desktop.

In addition to the list of goals you have there, I would suggest:

* Create an official minimal server spin image, link to it on
fedoraproject.org/get-fedora (when we do this, we can relegate the
choose-your-own-adventure DVD images to a secondary page)
* Consider creating a landing point page for all the admin
technologies in Fedora (kickstart, cobbler, etc.) Does one exist now?

Do you plan to create a mailing list, or use this one?
