OK, before I get a flood of replies, I'll jsut say that I use debian at
home, and I have a debian woody CD, so I can't see anything wrong with

Any thoughts on an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)? If it's only for
wlug members then we can probably get away with a short paragraph
that says "play fair, drink responsibly" etc etc. Maybe set up a wiki page
until we can all agree on one...

Just to get some numbers, how many people out there would be likely
to use such a service?

And lastly, Sahil hasn't replied yet - what sort of terms would the hosting
be on?
