Hi Tyler,
I have been offline for a few days, sorry to be late reacting. We have new
email addresses as of 2007 and I am not sure whether Benjamin still reads
any ccgis mails as they were heavily spammed. His address now is
benjamin.thelen at you-know-who.com

sorry to bother yet again, could you please enable email verification for
the OSGeo wiki? This is pressing as the Wiki has been "found" by a series
of ugly bots causing a lot of manual reverting to be done.

we are only waiting for you to say that you are ready and have a machine
up and running. It does not take much as it is now, just install MySQL,
PHP and MediaWiki. The rest is just one MySQL dump file, and some config
file muggling...

If this will take you longer than expected (or Tyler gets really fed up
soon) we can sponsor one year's worth of a root server at our ISP and let
SAC get full access on that machine, backup and so on are taken care of by

Best regards,

Arnulf Christl
