Indeed, and now they have found trac.gnutls.org big time.  Sigh.  Would
you (or anyone else on this list) have time to help administrate a trac
installation?  Can anyone sponsor a xen instance to host this?

Or if we can collect funds to buy a commercial VPS.  I can get a fixed
IP debian 128MB/5GB instance with 50GB/month network from glesys.se for
79 SEK (around 9 EUR or 14 USD).  I have good experience with them.
Anyone knows of better deals with good uptime etc?

Thanks for configuration hints...

Thanks for your offer!  Right now kniv runs some unrelated stuff that I
don't want to expose, so the first step would be to find a better host
for this where we can give people accounts.
