[tahoe-dev] Production grid, leases, OpenBSD buildslave

Hi,

   Great that you have it connected! I think our helper is down at the 
moment while we are upgrading our storage capacity, so expect that furl 
to work in the next few days.

   Currently on the production grid you are limited to a single 
root-cap, but note that we give lots of notice and make lots of noise 
before deleting anything, so if you do end up managing more, you just 
have to send us your verify caps for any extra root caps you are 
managing and we can then maintain storage on the back-end.

   If you run "tahoe backup --help" does that give you the details you 
were looking for in terms of command line options?
