Hi All,

We've been using LVS with some pretty high end clients (Porsche and Phillips),
and as part of our charter to give back to the community, I've been cleared to
donate a dedicated server at our Abovenet NY facility to the project with a
100Mbit connection to the internet.

It'll be a dedicated server, and whoever is in charge can get root access, so we
can set up cvs, rsync, mailing lists and whatever.

As far as the specs go, it'll be a nice machine (PIII 800, 512MB+, SCSI). And as
most of your probably know, the bandwith doesn't get any better than Abovenet.

Let me know if you want to take us up on this.
