ello folks

a boring domestic flight back home with owt much to do and no really 
interesting mail to read has got me thinking about how we have our 
servermatrix box (called tempest, for no real reason), and nothing's really 
being done with it.  I think we have the following things to start thinking 
about doing ...

- switching primary DNS from everydns to the servermatrix box
   this will let us do what we want with the domain when we want to -
   no offence to david, as i don't think there's ever been a problem
   with getting stuff updated, but much nicer to host stuff ourselves,

- running up core services with appropriate access for sysadmin
   this is partly my fault - i forgot to pass on the root password
   for mysql before leaving on business, and it's sitting on a post-
   it note on one of my monitors (you mean you don't all use the
   monitor/post-it(tm) note filing system?!), hehe

- leo services moved over to tempest
   johnh has done the grunt work of getting qmail + mailman up and
   running, so let's take advantage of the higher processing power of
   tempest and move leo over there.  we also need to decide (if we
   haven't already) what we're doing with css-d - i imagine it's
   moving too, and i've no issue with that, but is that something
   that's been codified, or just talked about and nothing decided?

   this probably means we can and should park mail for evolt.org
   there too, so we could have evolt.org mail aliases :>

- beo moved over to tempest
   this will let the evolt.org.uk raq be what it was meant to be
   in the first place in relation to evolt.org - a beo mirror :)
   all the files are on tempest, we just need to test then
   change dns.

- other sites migrated over
   stuff like deo (dir) should probably be moved, i'll sort dean out
   with the mysql stuff he needs when i get home.

- next gen *eo written and tested
   a codevolt by the end of the year would be a good call - sometime
   between TOevolt and ne'er would be cool i think :)  if we at least
   get stuff really *started*, it's better than how it stands just
   now (some mockups and html tests, and a PoC by johnh/seb)

- did i miss anything? :)
