Thus far, no objections have been raised on the above proposal. Also, it
has been pointed out that past privacy concerns were related to the way
in which the entries were published, rather than to the actual
opportunity of doing so.

Barring other objections, I hereby propose to go ahead and publish at
www.debian.net an automated generated lists of registered services,
associated to the Debian login name who has registered them.

I'll be happy to do the non-automated documentation part, but I could
use help (busy days ahead...) to write the scripts that query LDAP and
generates the HTML index. Any volunteer?
