I was talking to coop today about how painful it was to update the known_hosts on the windows build slaves for bug 804357.  He mentioned I should open a bug to manage this with GPO.	

The stuff we need to manage include
sshd configuration, ssh keys and known hosts
The w64 builders aren't part of the domain, so we can't manage them with gpo.  We want to make them part of the domain at a later date, but we'll need to work out that task sequence and reinstall every w64 machine to do that.  I don't think you're going to want to wait the couple quarters that that's going to take us.

I don't want to try to manage other groups' bug queue, but given that you've admitted this is something we want to do, and that it will happen later, why mark the bug as WONTFIX? 

Is there informal IT policy about not having long-lived bugs? Could you mark it as Q3 and come back to it later?
Because we already have a bug to add it to the current image.  See 849942.  When we redo everything and join the builders to the domain, that will automatically be split out into GPO.
