Due to personal time constrains (and hardware/network reorganization here)
I would like to ask if someone may host the mhonarc mailing list. (I can
continue to serve a public list archive here.)
Since there is more than one person who has responded to Achim's
request, I suggest that those who have responded (and may still
respond) please provide the following information:
o Do you have the time to respond timely to administrative
requests and list problems?
o If something happens to you (quit job, move, etc ...) that
makes it impossible for you to do you duties as list
administrator, will someone be available to take your place?
o Do you have approval of your superiors (or owners of the
system) to host the mailing list?
o What kind of system resources (machine and network) will be
used? Want to make sure the system(s) used can handle the
traffic and is reliable.
o What domain will the mailing list be in? I prefer to have
the list maintened by a non-commercial domain so no implied
endorsements and commercial support can be inferred.
My intent is to not make a competition out of this. However, since
multiple persons have shown interest in hosting the list, some
selection criteria must be used to pick who will do it.
Note, I am grateful for those who are willing to take over hosting
the list since I lack the resources to do it myself.
