I sup every night, and through a slight kluge I can receive email to my
local machine. I am thinking of offering a mail-server so that people
could send config.new-style config files to here and get i386 binary
kernels (of a current nature) back (since my machine sits idle, mostly).
They could either be uu-mailed, uu-mailed chopped, or available through FTP
(with some effort on the receiver's part). Does anyone think this would
be a worthwhile service to offer?
There would, of course, be no promise that you will get anything back,
due to any number of reasons, but for people w/o much disk space for source,
it might be nice. Any problems with this?
(please don't send requests yet :)
