Okay, I can totally understand this. Now what if some hosting company is
proposing to host Gentoo infrastructure or provide bandwidth for us, when is
it eligible to be forwarded to the infrastructure project and Foundation?

For instance, do we have a place where our current "needs" are displayed or
where I can find some numbers that I can show to the prospects so they can
see what we are really looking for (what bandwidth and such)?

Because frankly, someone who wants an advertisement because he is able to
host Gentoo boxes on a shared 1 Mbps line is probably not to be taken into
account.
