Hi everyone,

I just finished moving the pubgrid to a new server and decided that I should
use the occasion for some status updates:

* gdt updated the wiki page with some social norms and "rules". I think they
  are a good idea and if you use the pubgrid you should read his changes.
* I removed one storage server, soultcer at skulls, please repair your files if
  necessary.
* As noted above I moved the pubgrid web gateway, introducer and stats gatherer
  to a different vServer and dedicated about 15 GB of storage to the pubgrid. I
  will resort to deleting shares manually (biggest files first) should the node
  become full despite garbage collection being enabled.
* I added a big fat warning for Chinese uses who thought that using a public
  web gateway to a tahoe grid is magically secure (hint: It's not). I should
  have done this long ago. Thanks to Zooko for the idea and Jonathan M. for the
  translation.
* To further warn users the additional domain name insecure.tahoe-lafs.org was
  set up by Zooko and all HTTP requests to pubgrid.tahoe-lafs.org will be
  redirected to it.
* The graphs are not back up yet, but I am working on getting Munin to produce
  nice graphs again.
* I will create a tar archive of files needed to restore the pubgrid in the
  case of my disappearance and send it to the following people: Zooko, Brian
  Warner and David-Sarah Hopwood. Zooko is in control of the domain
  tahoe-lafs.org.


Cheers,
David
