What would it take (how much would it cost us) to move the
www.winehq.org site to another server?
We have had this problem for a while now (over a week) that our main
site has been sporaticly unavailable. I appreciate all the work Jeremy
Newman has put into trying to find the problem but I think that having
all of websites (excepting the wiki) on one box is a bad idea in the
long run. I think that we should dedicate a box to www.winehq.org
since having a uninterupted presence on the web is critical to Wine's
Right now we host quite a number of different services on the one box.
Ideally we could have a redundant/mirrored solution but that is not

This is my list in order of importance (wiki is not on this list
because it is already on a separate box)
Git - Essential service (easy to miror)
www.winehq.org - critical to our image (easy to mirror ???)
mysql - critical to appdb and bugzilla (cannot mirror effectively)
bugs.winehq.org - important to fixing bugs ;^) (hard to mirror)
appdb.winehq.org - userland mostly. ( yes it's important but not
critical) (hard to miror)

cvs - needed for web site development and people not converted to git
(easy to mirror)

www.winehq.org is one option I see (and am willing to help pay for). I
am sure there are other options but I wanted to at least open the
