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
committers@apache.org 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.
