Een Gelukkig Nieuwjaar aan iedereen (ook aan mijn buurvrouwje) en
natuurlijk ook aan Dag,

Happy New Year to everyone.

Agreed.

Me too but some are out-of-date.

Agreed.

Yes, let us save, preserve and resurrect (revitalise, update) the Dag
repo. If many of us can do a little, then under the leadership of Steve
Repoforge can regain its rightful place as a Linux treasury of
dependable, if not also invaluable, material.

I am sure Dag, now time limited, will help, advise and guide us to make
repoforge an invaluable deposit of Linux (for me, Centos/Red Hat)
binaries.  Let us start a community effort for 2015.

With everyone working together we can, collectively, make a beneficial
difference to everyone.

What are the hosting arrangements for repoforge - who presently funds
the servers ?
