While the Vim Tips wiki should be hosted on a system completely
under our control, it was decided at the time (early 2007) that
relying on a private system operated by a Vim enthusiast may
lead to long term problems if that enthusiast were hit by the
proverbial bus. Indeed, the whole Vim mailing list ground to a
halt for several weeks in 2007 when the hosting server suddenly
became unavailable (that's why we are now on Google Groups).
I have recently received a good offer of free hosting, but now
we have the additional problem that forking would cause, in
addition to any concerns regarding buses.
