Since this is quite a precious resource, may be Debian project could
spend some liquidity for at least a basic backup?
Zack -- we are talking about http://snapshot.debian.org , which
obviously constantly growing in size and IMHO is quite valuable. Would
there be funds for some basic backup solution (consumer grade RAID +
high capacity drives) for the beast?
or may be there is some friendly company (or may be we have among Debian
resources) which could provide such volumes of backup space for
this project (at a reasonable/discounted price)?
