Yes, if we take this, I strongly suggest putting it in a container, with 
its database also containerized. If it is just wordpress (that is, 
nobody's done anything special), all we'd really need is a copy of the 
database (IIRC, wordpress keeps its static content (like photos) in that 

I think whoever is supposed to manage the content (see e.g. the "Donor 
Wall" at the bottom of the page) should get some training from whoever's 
been doing that at ISOC so far.

You're thinking ISOC would forward to whatever address we created? It seems to me that this will have to land 
on a person who can manage taking a donation. Until the LLC appoints 
someone else, I think that has to be the executive director, no?
