[Server-devel] [XSCE] easy or complicated to change XSCE server + OpenVPN names?

the name of the schoolserver should never be changed, though its domain can be changed from .lan to something else.  so far we have not worried about multiple servers having the same name because they are not expected to be on the same network, but at some point we should probably introduce a subdomain, especially where more than one server belongs to the same organization.

I leave it to George to rule on the openvpn user name for the server, but changing that seems possible.

What I worry about is that we are currently on track to deploy two different versions of xsce this round.  At the very least we should store a version string somewhere and make sure the setup document for each server records this.

Just curious in case Sora/Haitians desire to re-order deployments, wondering how much hassle she/they'd face:

EG. she's scheduled to deploy school "delmas28" July 5+, school "boisdavril" July 12+, and school "lascahobas" a week later July 19+ --- but logistics can change as ~3 servers+all are quickly canoe'd to Haiti over the coming month ;)

(Or if it's too complicated+dangerous to have her change server & OpenVPN names on the ground in Haiti, just let us know :)
