I have been following gentoo-wiki's new procedures and rebuild process
and I think they are on a good track right now.
I am throwing this out there, can we ask Mike Valstar for a dump of all
his stuff, slap it on gentoo hardware under a wiki.gentoo.org link? It
could be a "community building" experience and offering the stability of
gentoo hardware to a service like gentoo-wiki. Maybe also invite Mike to
be the admin of said hardware, etc. Thoughts?
(I don't know what a community wiki would require for infra hardware,
maybe someone will chime in)
