Please don't top post, and please do quote relevant sections of  
original e-mails when replying. I don't know what the above statement  
is referencing, since I never made any claims about who should choose,  
or act as, the SugarLabs sysadmins.

A single point of failure was never an 'option'; at OLPC, it was a  
reality due to organizational failings. No reasonable open source  
community will make those kinds of mistakes.

I've offered hardware, bandwidth and root to a small group of trusted  
SugarLabs people. I'll leave scheduling meetings and discussing it  
with OLPC to people who have the patience.
