Thanks for providing the basic overview of this. Could you (or someone on the
team) provide an explanation about how you would like this to be configured on

As far as I know, this is up to the hub to decide, but in our case, anyone could
Note that users would subscribe to the hub, meaning users would expose their IP
address to google. However, subscribing means registering your domain and
callabck URL with google; the hub is supposed to push to the subscriber, so it
needs the subscriber's IP in some form or other.
The subscription URL (at the google hub) is advertized on the HTML head of every
wiki page (please correct me if I got the details wrong).
Also, based on our last conversation, it sounds like
we're up against some time
constraints here with respect to the students' time; could you clarify?
The project ends by the end of next week. Ofter that, it becomes less and less
likely for the students to still be around. I of course hope they will be
maintaining their projects for years to come, but if we want to be sure to get a
quick response, it would be good to get this reviewed asap.
