Hi Alagie,

>From my understanding during our last conversation was they will host
the gamchix domain not just mailing list. on the other hand the gamchix
domain hosting isnt an individual business it's a service they paid for
so i see no reason why someone would hijack that domain and bring it
down. i'm never with the idea of local content been hosted outside
gambia we have all the resources to host it here and its already hosted
so i don't see any reason why you would wnt NSRC to host it but hence
that's what you all are ok with i guess i would rest my case but i still
stand with my motion that it shouldn't be hosted outside.
