I do have some comments and suggestions, but I think the last few posts highlight another issue that needs to be addressed. Things have gotten to the point where LOAF and other folks are asking a number of technical and non-technical questions that span a wide range of issues. This is really a long term effort on the part of the CIC staff and a considerable number of volunteers, and I think a single thread is no longer sufficient. Have you given any thought to creating a sub-forum for this project or perhaps coming up with some other means to facilitate the discussion of these issues? If you had a sub-forum, you could, for example, create sticky threads where you might enumerate and update the hardware list you plan to take to the archive site, deal with manpower issues, etc. I think that a lot of good information was discussed in #Wingnut last night, but chat room discussions are too ephemeral and too private in a situation like this where you are trying to pull together expertise and resources from so many quarters.
