I've bought C-U Wireless a server.
To start, the new server will host the C-U Wireless Subversion source
repository, with read-only anonymous access and read/write access
to account holders. So far, the repository keeps sources for two
projects---the station boot CD-ROM/CompactFlash, and building blocks
for a wireless routing daemon. You are invited to use this repository
for your own C-U Wireless software projects.

for four months at a time, and also let us put a server on one of the

David Young will administrate the C-U Wireless server in collaboration
with other project members.
A C-U Wireless server will not put an unusual burden on OJC's
C-U Wireless is willing to provide progress updates on the development
it does and to provide projects originated by C-U Wireless to OJC
under BSD license, with all our contributions to other projects being
available as open source under those projects' respective licenses.
C-U Wireless will grant accounts on our server to developers in
C-U and around the world. To help protect OJC's network, we will
take reasonable efforts to verify the identity and integrity of
C-U Wireless will acknowledge OJC for lending the network connection
in our server's UNIX login banner and on our website.
