Kalyan - Ruchir does have a quite valid point, you know.  Also, the issue of
_where_ cochin.linux-india.org should point is a matter to be sorted out
with the linux-india.org webmaster, which Atul currently is (till such time as
someone takes up his offer to take charge of the hosting / DNS).

If one party in this issue has an issue with how the matter is sorted out (and
they will, considering that a subdomain can point to only one place at a time)
then that party has every right to raise the issue here (though perhaps in a
slightly more polite way than has been done here).

And can you tell me what is your contribution to linux *in* india, or my
contribution, or anyone else's contribution?   OK, I'll answer my own question.

We all contribute by helping other people on / off the list solve their linux
related issues (and no, despite what some people think, not all the questions
are about SiS cards and noauth in /etc/ppp/options).  

We all (well, those of us who actually know / feel strongly enough about the
issue) contribute our opinions to various discussions on LIG.

Most, if not all of us try to introduce linux into their workplace to replace
NT, evangelize linux (in the sense that they try to persuade their friends and
colleagues to try linux), etc.

Some of us, who work for the media (newspapers, magazines, TV channels etc)
write / source articles about linux, and make linux CDs as well.

I could go on and on, but the gist of what I'm saying is that "X has done a lot
more for linux in India than you have, so X is above criticism" isn't an
argument that I'd agree with.
