That's another point I'd like to talk about. I have no idea how I can
help if you don't ask on the list ;). As far as I can tell, you need CPU
time to recompile the "older" packages from the "F9 alpha vs. F9" tree
on http://buildsys.zero42.at/status/, am I right?
What is this tree anyway, is it compared against the Fedora 9 base DVD
only or the current Fedora 9 + all the updates?

Are you talking about Paul Frields?

Great, as long as you keep pushing the idea regularly I'm happy. :)

Frankly, I don't think that Alphacore is an appropriated name anymore,
since Fedora dropped the Core part. If you really want a domain name to
get some visibility until we get integrated in Fedora as a secondary
architecture, I suggest alphadora.org. It isn't a bad name after all.

We are not that many, so I that that the mailinglist is still the
central place to be, but a small Wordpress-based website could be cool
too to get some visibility. I can take care of this if you want.
