Ouch. Without being excessively pedantic, it's a little difficult for us to 
take the decision of how to host our stuff if we get one message in irc and 
another on the mailing list. You said that your server would be pretty 
powerful after the ubuntu-de migration, and that you were happy for the 
Italian team to continue hosting there. Is this still the case?
We were keen because the server is quite powerful and we believe it will be 
enough to power our wiki and forum.
