hey florian im just curious how does one get to be a system admin? Is it limited to those people in germany or can people such as myself based in malta help out as a systems admin as well?

Hi David,

I've no particular opinion about the funding, but I did regret having
missed the opportunity to have met the project's sysadmins, and I was
disappointed that it was a thing not decided with the knowledge and
possible involvement of the international community of web resource
contributors, but with only discussion between German members.

While I recognize that there are many German sysadmins in the project,
I do hope that it's not going to become a habit that things be
organized purely between them, because there are actually other people
working on webby things. Please do remember the spirit and intentions
of the Community Bylaws.

of course, we do, but that meeting was a nonpublic one on purpose.

We really wanted to get a lot of work done concerning the admins, and we were busy all weekend long. Anyone outside of the admin group would have had a boring time. There was simply no time for "meet and greet", as harsh as it sounds. It was solely for those having root access, not for web site managers, as the technical topics were in-depth and detailed.

We definitely plan to have open meetings, but this meeting was really necessary to make the sysadmins work together, so it was reserved for this group.

Hope you understand what I mean and it doesn't sound too harsh. :-)
