Re: manpages.debian.net issues?


I'm willing to host it at no charge for the community.  We have plenty of spare bandwidth in our hosting systems and will be glad to help.  If you can let me know what kind of requirements the site needs I'll check and see what's available.  It would, of course, come with 24/7 email support.

Hi Javier,

I note that manpages.debian.net is down. I asked DSA on IRC and they
said you haven't responded for their calls for help moving it to another
machine and that they would not be re-enabling it without responsive
maintainers for the service.

Are you still interested in maintaining this service?

Is anyone else on the debian-doc list interested in helping provide
web-accessible manual pages for Debian users?

Recent mails[1][2] on the debian-www list indicate that it is a somewhat
popular service. The wiki links to it a lot for manual pages.
