The old registrant is knipp.de, I don't think we'll see much problems there.

Thank you. I'm planning to collect further messages (I have half a dozen now) 
until Sunday or so and then decide.

Web sites are served by SourceForge, and perhaps we can put up a backup on 
BerliOS and have them serve the content, so probably no big deal either.

Thank you.
