21 I have been following gentoo-wiki's new procedures and rebuild process
22 and I think they are on a good track right now.
24 I am throwing this out there, can we ask Mike Valstar for a dump of all
25 his stuff, slap it on gentoo hardware under a link? It
26 could be a "community building" experience and offering the stability of
27 gentoo hardware to a service like gentoo-wiki. Maybe also invite Mike to
28 be the admin of said hardware, etc. Thoughts?
30 (I don't know what a community wiki would require for infra hardware,
31 maybe someone will chime in)
33 2 cents,
34 Jeremy
