The box-admins team is responsible for seeing that the community shared
server is maintained and setting up any new features to be hosted on
that server.

For January, 2010:

First of all I want to remind everyone that I recently announced


my plans to retire as the team leader for the box-admins team.
Currently I am looking for a replacement and would be happy to discuss
details of the job with anyone interested.

Overall things ran smoothly in January but we did have a hiccup or two
related to what seemed to be unintentional HTTP denial of service by web
crawlers.  When noticed we blocked IP traffic from these hosts
temporarily which cleared up the issue and after removing the blocks
they seemed to be better behaved.

Andreas Raab took the time to see how easy it would be to get
SqueakSource running in a recent Trunk release of Squeak and it turned
out easier than expected and so http://source.squeak.org/ is now running
on an image derived from Squeak 3.11-8824.
