Oh. Fair enough.

I can see the argument for encryption on the one hand; because of the 
security of said servers, but on the other hand I wouldn't mind having a 
local copy of the parabola servers running on my local network and/or 
learning about the infrastructure some more (particularly if there is a 
backup of a build server).

I guess if you are keeping them for only for redundancy anyway, it 
shouldn't matter too much if they are encrypted or not, as you won't be 
using them in that manner either way.
