PLEASE, anyone, if you can think of additions to the bulleted list
below, let us know.

thank you, jason, your hat is welcome. which formal job you want:
* primary sf-lug web maintainer (there should be alternates)
* alternate sf-lug.org web maintainer (jim's primary)
* primary dns god (jim and nathan have done this so far)
* primary postfix god
* primary wiki god
* primary book publisher liason
* alternate sf-lug.{com,org} contact person (jim's primary)
* pager-monkey (there should be at least three pager-monkeys,
and at least one from sf-lug and one from balug, each of whom
gets email of system distress and is willing to go to the colo if
need be and slap the box or at least take immediate notice and
try to fix from home and/or coordinate with some other pager-
monkey to ensure problem is immediately fixed or worked-
around. currently jim, michael paoli, and nathan kuriger are
our pager monkeys. no reason not to have one or two more,
especially one more from the balug group.
