If there is need for a european 'private sync' server, then we have 
plenty of bandwith for that connected right to the AMSIX in amsterdam, 
which we will be glad to donate (ehm still need to run that by the 
board, but using more bandwith will give the research network more 
reasons to upgrade us sooner, so usually the board is just fine with 
stuff like this :) )

However we cannot donate a dedicated server atm. The reason for this is 
quite simple, in that our budgets and mission plan basically say that 
any 'spending' should be done for the benefit of the local university 
community. A public sync/ftp server falls into this category since it 
allows our students to experiment with different types of OS'es and 
stuff like that, which we like to encourage. a private server however 
does not fall into this category.

greetings from Holland,
