So, I believe that a lot of the issues Dan raises need to be addressed, and
I believe weıll address them in time. They really are more about the overall
governance of the code4lib website (and maybe of code4lib overall), and our
responsibilities and duties. These kinds of decisions take time, and it is
quite possible in the long-term weıll decide there is a particular hosting
service that works best for code4lib.org other than the current shared
server or than OSU.

In the meantime, I must disagree with Ross and state that I believe there is
at least one pressing need to get the server back up ASAP ­ the c4l
conference. I need to move forward in the planning and relating the info on
the conference, and that is, at least in part, hindered without the server
being up and running.

What I believe everyone is stating (implicitly, at least) is that we all now
feel the need for a stable and secure code4lib.org host which will allow for
all of our code4lib goodness to exude unhindered.

So, the one point that I donıt understand Dan is what you see as the
advantage of having c4l hosted at ibiblio is as opposed to OSU? I donıt
believe there are any technical advantages (we already support most of the
current c4l software, such as Drupal and trac, here at OSU, and whatever
accounts / access is requested by the c4l community will be available).

Let me ask directly ­ is there a continued concern about having a university
donate hosting services? I want to reiterate that we are offering our
services, but not looking to obtain any sort of control whatsoever over the
site ­ the site will still be run by the code4lib community, and if there
ever was an issue around this, could easily be moved elsewhere (again, as
decided by the c4l community).

I guess, unless Iım missing something, Iım saying that we did decide to come
up with a proposal for how to migrate the site over to being hosted here at
OSU, and unless there is a truly compelling reason to re-visit that
decision, Iıd like to go ahead and move forward with the proposal and work
to getting the site up and stable ASAP. Even if we want to move things
elsewhere (like ibiblio) longterm, there is nothing to prevent that, but Iıd
like to get things moving....
