SubjectRe: [OFFTOPIC] Mailing Lists

vger is frequently down and there is quite a bit of e-mail going around

It was down only because I was in Germany all last week and could only
attend to the machine once every 2 or 3 days while I was there...

(last Monday 120.000 on .com-exploder and 50.000 on .edu exploder!)

Could we come up with a scheme to decentralize the mailing lists so that
one host cannot result in everything failing and some means of automatic
load determination? Sounds complicated... Maybe someone here has an idea
to do it in a simple and easy way.

I have a 400MB/day limit by the provider on the .com exploder and I was
definitely over it on Monday.

No, it must be centralized to a certain extent, there must be a big
red firetruck, driven by one person/site. This is necessary for the
same reasons that we centralize the kernel sources at one
place/person, with Linus wherever he is.
