[Ubuntu-US-NM] EPC suggestion

I think that caching packages is a great idea. A cool idea may be to 
carve out a bit of storage from the FreeNAS, once it is built, and mount 
the NAS share, via NFS, to /var/cache/apt on each of the workstations. 
That way there is a central area that all packages are shared and cached 
for all workstations to see.

Food for though.
