Of course.  Linuxaudio.org  has been registered  for being used by the
Consortium.   As such,  I  don't have any  definitive power  over that
domain, I need to ask for a voting to take place.

As you wish.

If you tried to visit the archives via:


you should have seen all the instructions to subscribe.

Grow a thicker skin.  I'm not going to use a  diplomatic tone if I get
accused of wanting to "divide the LAD  community" (whatever it is) and
other heinous crimes against Libre Software.

I happen to have   a slightly-more-than-basic law  background (italian
civil law) thanks to my studies.  I read the "linuxadio.org" thread on
LAD.   Still,  I don't get  your  points.   Since you   are trying  to
convince me (as a member of the consortium) that my ideas are wrong, I
suspect the  burden of being repetitive and/or  more convincing  is on
your shoulders.

Fine.  If you need hosting space (within  any domain of your choosing)
AGNULA  will  gladly host you  (well,  maybe not  so gladly, but since
AGNULA has precise goals as a project I'm not going to let my personal
feelings get in the way).

Again: grow  a thicker skin.    Let me  know   if you need the   above
mentioned services.  In the meantime, all the best with your efforts.
