I forwarded to Esben Haabendal our final decision.
I used words and arguments listen on this list in order to
write my message.

That is indeed great news! We will do our best to not let you down on
this decission.

Sounds good. But let us try and work out these virus and spam
problems. Could the unsatisfied users detail out exactly what
problems they feel are with the current mulinux lists, and what
steps could be taken to solve this in a way that is not to much of a
hassle to the rest of the list subscribers.

Thank you :) It is our belief that we need to build up a lot of small
open source hosting sites, instead of centralizing everything at
sourceforge.net. Single point of failure is never smart.

Sure. We can also provide you with rsync access to the site, which
you can use to do this kind of stuff easily in the future. Are you
interested in that ?

Yes, we have decided to set a disk-quota for all projects. But this
is not because we don't want to give you the space you need, but
merely a way to keep some kind of track of which projects need and use
how much space. It makes it possible for us to prevent one project to
take up all the available disk space from other projects (fx. by

So, how much disk-space do you need for muLinux (total requirement) ?
Let us know, and we will set the disk-quota apropriately.

While we are talking, I have another thing I wish to talk with you
about. For some time ago, we started hosting project websites at
URL's like http://yourproject.sunsite.dk instead of
http://sunsite.dk/yourproject. In the near future, we are going to
move the remaining old projects to this new type of URL. We will
ofcourse setup redirects, so no old links will go stale. My question
is then, do you need to do any changes to your website for this change
to be executed ? We would like to know if/when it is ok to proceed
with the change.
