in reply to OT: Is there a word for a semi-official server?

We call a machine such as this the "staging server" (as in the application is on performing on the stage, ready to be criticed).

Google seems to get some hits for that terminology as well.

    In my corner of Corporate IT-land, that isn't what "staging" means. Here staging is where new applications and new changes go when they're ready for their last round of testing before hitting production. Therefore the staging systems need to be near-replicas of the production environment, and access to them is almost as tightly controlled as production because you don't want random users installing or changing things that might bias the testing one way or another. We actually don't have a term for what Cody Pendant is asking for, which is a shame really, because it sounds like a good idea. Here what ends up happening is that people end up messing around with app development boxes and no one has any clue what's on them.
