[ircd-ratbox] ircd Archive looking for new maintainer

The ircd patch archive I have maintained for the past three years on 
http://ircd.botbay.net is now offline permanently.

This e-mail is to see if anyone from the Hybrid, ratbox, or IRC 
services community wishes to take over maintainer-ship (and hosting) of 
the archive and its components.

At peak, the archive hosted over 78MB of Hybrid patches and modified 
versions; 44MB of ratbox patches, modified versions, and CVS 
checkouts; 20MB of archived ircd services programs; and nearly 10MB of 
server administration and opering tools.  In total, the archive is 
over 180MB in size.

In addition to the file archive, a list of "open-source" services 
programs known to run on any of the TSora compatible ircd's was 
maintained, the page for my own defunct set of statistical services, 
and provided a PHP script that generated a "services shortcut" 
commands module for your server

Since I no longer have the time or interest to keep the archive 
maintained, I want to find someone who does, to continue to provide 
the service to the community.

If you wish to maintain the archive, or wish to ask additional 
questions, please reply to me OFF LIST.

Thank you for your time.

PS.  The archive was taken down prior to this mailing to prevent mass 
mirrorers from hogging my limited bandwidth.

PPS.  The archive was created to cover ALL major EFnet ircd's, I wish 
for it to remain that way.
