I do no criticize just for the sake of opening a micro flame war.
Besides, in the mainstream Joomla world, the sense/concept of community is often abused to depitct the whole thing as the big cohesive family we are not. This is starting to resemble the dictatorship of a few oligarchs.
Has this strategic decision been voted outside the Inner Party?
If it had, then we could invoke the so called "community" as a source of legitimacy.

Now the old forge goes down because of A, in a year the new forge will go down because of B (probably because code.google.com will take over the FOSS world)... I mean, an "enterprise ready" CMS cannot afford this permanent drifting.

My sarcasm is the consequence of a personal frustration with certain trends i have been silently observing for a few months.

Take my words the way you want. All i know is that situations like this just *CAN'T* happen, for the sake of the project itself.

Ahhh... And please, no volunteer "blackmail" reminders. FOSS is exactly about that. We are all volunteers here.

Ljv.

All day Firefox has told me that the server does not exist. So that gives me the impression that it, indeed, does not exist - not that it is slow or "down."

I can still connect without any problems.  Am I the only one?

There apparently was a problem.  If similar problems occur in the future, please do a search on the forum to determine if it has already been reported.  If it has not, please leave a message in the appropriate forum (Sites and Infrastructure) so that the matter can be attended to.

Thanks for your patience while this is being sorted out.

For the admins:

Perhaps it's time to lock this thread.  I never intended for this particular topic to be a forum to vent frustrations, only to air my idea that perhaps a backup might come in handy.  Seeing as this idea does not appear to be taken up any further comments on this thread are essentially pointless.

This should now be resolved. I was setting up some even more redundant DNS zones and missed that one. Sorry.
