Based on this understanding, I did not include the MoFo headcount in our MoCo application request. I am happy to modify that if I've misunderstood something... as the primary point is co-locate with other Mozillians :)

As I mentioned before, after some fairly extensive research I was only able to find one space that would entertain a "part-time" membership (Design Cloud). Would anyone be interested in pursuing that space? Any other ideas?
