As a counter argument, we have the example of debian-uk, which is
hosted on chiark.greenend.org.uk, which does work OK (when SAUCE isn't
doing it's thing ;-), but as demonstrated earlier in this thread, few
people find it, because it's not address@hidden (where it
"should" be).

BTW if people want somewhere to meet up before September, there's the
London Linux Expo on 5&6 July:

Just before that there's the UKUUG developers conference (which I'll
be missing, but is usually well worth a visit):

Cheers, Phil.

P.S. Debian will have a stand at both Expos, so come and say hello if
you're around, and you might even get one of our free beers :-)
