Ok thanks for the concern but I'll still have the website ready by
next week just in case anybody contacts RMS and he agrees....
Back when I started the community, I did not have any hosting facility
I had even requested for a list at mm.gnu.org.in but didn't get any
In the current host there is no mailman but i'm buying a mailman
The web site is supposed to be the platform for everything in the
community... There's an activism blog, project Ideas blog, Project
addition request blog... Wiki per project. and GIT repositories for
each project... so there is no point in first tediously building the
community if the launch if the website can easily attract developers
and activists.... Currently the community has 5 people who have not
yet responded to any emails in the group! so first the launch!
For the question that how is this different from gnu.org It is not a
website like gnu.org but a community of Free Software Bloggers.. .and
a community of developers like apache.org who develop only selected
High quality free software. all using various services like blogengine
and GIT repos on the same server and funded by same sponsors.
