thinking out loud and contemplating our possibilities. The thing is: I can
easily set up a web-service for www.hackers.org.il with no need for root.
However, I do need a root for setting up the mail service. If I don't have
one, there's no way I can do it.

only try to host the domain on iglu.org.il, which is the only server I have
root on. Note that I never set up a new qmail domain before, just managed
existing ones, so I may have to RTFM a bit.

and then he'll be able to set up everything we need (E-mail-wise at least - I
don't worry about the WWW-part).

I volunteer to ponie the time. But I do need root access, unless you want
iglu.org.il (which is in a flimsy state nowadays because of the ancient
distribution there), to be the host for this mail domain and mailing list as
well. And I'd rather wait until we have bigger hard-disks and install a more
modern distribution there. ("bimhera beyamenu amen sela")
