I would imagine updating links regarding each release etc. Whatever was 
done before Jeff left.

I am unsure who maintained it before but was under the impression Jeff 
only hosted it, not maintain the coding but I could be completely wrong

Yeah definitely. Once we know what we have and what we need, we will be 
able to assess any shortfalls with regards to hosting we may need.

Yeah, just a bit. That is why the BLAG community efforts are so highly
