Hi Greg and others,
I am finally sitting at my desk with access enough to move things over
to osuosl. Thanks for being good ocal'ers and sitting by. NOTE: ALl the
clipart and so forth are still URL downloadable at the current site, it
is just ccHost that is turned off and redirected to the wiki.
After I move this over and switch dns, then we will have more power to
give out access more easily. I want to get admin power on the server to
more people. Clearing admin requests, new accounts, and the power being
solely in my hands has been the biggest point of failure, and we need to
remedy that with more developers stepping up to help out regularly.
Would you like to help out Greg?

Yes, I understand. At this point, it is about lighting a fire under my
ass :) Ok, thankfully, this is not a business, and, our problems are
because of too much success...good problems to have! However, once we
are on osuosl, sustainability and uptime are key resources for us...we
need more developers to help keep things running, and thankfully, osuosl
keeps up tons of big sites and have tools in place. Previously with
freedesktop.org, we were on one box with all the other projects!!!
Amazing point of failure :) OSUOSL has a paid staff!
Yes, ok, enough talking, now rsync'ing the sites...
