Re: IITK Linux mirror
I don't really know anyone at IITD, but will try to make some contacts
and throw the idea at them. Thanks for the suggestion.
I'd also mailed this idea to India-GII, which I can't post to for some
reason. Arun happily ignored my message and then put the idea up as
his own a couple of days later... I hate politics!
Would it be OK if I requested you to redirect mail to India-GII from
me since I can't post directly?
