ftp.linux.org.uk and zeniv.linux.org.uk are the same box; both variants
will work, but I prefer to use the latter in signoffs, etc.
www.linux.org.uk is an unrelated system and I have no idea if it'll
forward the mail sent to viro@... over to zeniv. No reason for it
to do so...

whatever the hell they meant there.
