Thanks, Sam.

Of course, the related question is, *why* was this service shut down?

Was it just that the committers.ini file was out dated and nobody was
updating it? If so, perhaps mentioning this periodically on would be the right approach rather than just
dropping the service.

If it's resources, or someone to maintain it, that makes more sense.
Perhaps once I have the service running again we can point the DNS
record at it again?

I find stuff like this really useful in getting a sense of what the
larger community is up to. I'd personally like it if it was a Planet of
posts that were tagged 'apache', but that's a conversation that we had
to death back when the service was started up in the first place.
