Just some remarks to the art of discussion and decision here.
In March/April there were some mail concernig the wikisource, the future of wikiosurce

and so good prepared fot the shit here, that they will wait another half a year and then
start to work again??? I am sure, we lost not only some users, but we lost two subdomains
in the last four weeks.
I tried to keep the domain of wikisource.org

without saying who will do it in the future. I am not like to act there as a idiot, I am
You will have to recognize, that such acting leads to a loss of users and subdomains. You
will have to recognize that the wikisource subdomains have to learn something else than
the wikipedia or wictionary subdomains. Obviously, yaou have to recognize this in the
It is not a good feeling to me to write these sentences after three years of wotking here,
but the development of the WS did hurt me.
