By putting us in the subject line?  I doubt you know how to engage
people's interest.

Fascinating.  You would try to force our hand by setting a date and
claiming you will replace us.  Thanks for the vote of confidence in our
services.  I'm not encouraged.  I take this as an attack.

You should review the list of resources on the Wiki.

Please define "owner".  Is that someone who pays the bills, provides the

You've neglected the other metaservers.  The metaservers also provide

No.  Client blessing is pointless, since we have not TCA.

No, I see no reason to run a reference server.  We have enough servers.

They can set up their own servers.  They have already.  warped.
