i think the point here is to acknowledge that we're in a state of flux
at the moment. many have put time and effort into keeping things ticking
along nicely. as i've stated in another post on this topic, i think it's
good for us to have kimsufi 'pristine jebba' [like the phrase] at this
point in history. after yesterday's excellent news from alexandre about
the fsf hosting offer, your point about making kumsufi dynamic again
becomes relevant. once fsf-box is online and functioning, kimsufi and
whatever other mirrors are available become *the* place that blag users
apt/yum from.

it is good to note this.
