And how exactly does this help us in the event of say the OSL burning
down or the GNi suffering flooding? :)
My point was simply that I think we would be wise to research whether
there is the possibility of spreading our critical infrastructure a bit
better so that in the event of an Act of God or suchlike we wouldn't
find ourselves losing everything to, say, water damage.
I agree, adding a line to the social contract won't magically send our
servers across the world and into the homes^Wdatacenters of hundreds of
wonderful new sponsors. Would be nice if it did though!
