NOTICE: GRAMPS USER SITES HOSTED IN OUR LIBRARY SYSTEM WILL SOON BE
REMOVED TO TRY TO KEEP US IN LINE WITH OUR HOSTING SERVICES'
REQUIREMENTS...

Some of you may know we've had troubles over the last few days with our
hosting service.  Two issues have been identified - server load and
total number of files.

We're working to try to sort out the server load issue (you will notice
that the wiki is currently unavailable...)

The number of files issue relates primarily to the hosting of user sites
that we do, as seen as http://library.gramps-project.org - it has more
than 150,000 files in it...

That directory on its own puts us offside with the hosting service, with
immediate impact that they will not include our site in their backup
routines.

Reluctantly, it appears that we will have to remove all of these user
sites.  I hope that we can, over time, offer alternatives.  But the
short answer just now is that they will be deleted just as soon as I
have taken a full and accurate backup.

Presumably, these sites are simply 'snapshots' of each users' current
Gramps work.  You should, that is, already have copies of your site on
your own machine.  If there are any issues with this, you can contact me
directly.

On behalf of the project team, I apologise for (1) having to withdraw
the service and (2) having to do it in such an abrupt and sudden manner.
  It has not been our first choice of process, for sure!

Apologies to all
