A few points/things we should do:
Will add more to this thread as ideas come to me. I'm able to recommend hosting providers too that would be more cost effective for the project if needed.
To start, I'm currently collecting information, about what is around, and what is it used for, and more important, what all broke.
Then we have to make sure to get the site back online. This happened mostly already, as there don't seem to be to much panic in IRC during the last few days. Yet it seems that past releases are only on the hard drive of the p2c server.
For the foreseeable future we need a plan how to go ahead. This should include documentation, automation, monitoring and (oh surprise) backup. Setup redundancy for the important services will be one of our core targets.
I'm a long term perl(5) programmer and started last century with it using CGI on AIX.
For the perl6 community we (together with maettu) organised a hackathon on the Swiss Perl Workshop 2015 (remember, before xmas :-)).
I have some time currently, to get things done, and as the goal must be to get things automated. I expect that now, some effort is necessary, to get the sites back to online, and to do automation. For me, this is a longer term engagement, yet I think keeping the infrastructure alive, will not be a time consuming task.
As can see I have limited history of what happened in the infrastructure are in the past, and it would be really helpful if someone would give me some more information.
If somebody else wants to apply, you are still free to do so. If there's more than one candidate, current reviewers will vote.
Thanks @rba for summarizing what we discussed, yesterday.
I don't have tons of time in the coming months, but I am willing to put in some hours per week.
I am working for oetiker.ch, a Switzerland based IT consultancy. We do software projects and system management. Here is my page https://www.oetiker.ch/home/unternehmen/team/mb/.
