I'd be happy to host the site, and can do so pretty much indefinitely with plenty of bandwidth. also pretty consistent system administration. i can ask the sysadmin to set it up in a virtual linux config so that there is no worry about giving X people sudo or root access.

If everyone prefers the wiki in its current incarnation, that's cool.

I can also offer to build a full DB backed website as another alternative. It would be in the OpenACS architecture and look something like this: or

(not necessarily these designs or layouts, of course.)

this could involve a little graphic design to spruce the site up a bit and a content management system where there could be very liberal administrative and editorial permissions.

that's just a fourth alternative to consider.

that being said, i suppose the question is where does the community want to drive users? to the wiki or to the savannah page? what kind of information will the homepage/wiki contain in the future?

anyway, i'm happy to do whatever the community prefers.

 Each person in the to line has mentioned at least the possibility of
 hosting the Twiki-based wiki.

 May I ask that, within the next couple of days, those people decide
 among themselves who (if anyone) will host it and pass that info
 along to mgrubb and to gnu-arch-users so that we can either effect
 the transfer or let mgrubb off the hook (a bit later than planned

If I hosted this it would be on

1. Free bandwidth.
2. Reasonably fast server.
3. Complete control over apache / twiki / perl config.

1. System is informally backed up via rsync.
2. Provider is having firewall performance issues that will mean sporadically slow access until
   Sept. 7.
3. The server will probably be switched from FreeBSD to Linux sometime in the next few months,
   which will probably mean as much as a day of downtime.
4. If I switch jobs the server will probably have to come down. I don't see this happening anytime
   soon, but, as you all know, no guarantees.
