[OS X TeX] [Yale] i-installer directories

The end of the year approaches, and with it the end of Gerben's  
support for i-installer and the packages it provides.  I'm somewhat  
surprised that with all of the discussion this has provoked (mixed in  
with revisitings of the editor wars of long ago, Micro$oft and Adobe  
bashing, etc.) no one has said anything about the fate of the servers  
from which the i-installer material is available.

I'm the one whose server at Yale hosts both Gerben's "i-Directory at  
Yale" and the "*EXPERIMENTAL* i-Directory".  I have some qualms about  
continuing to support this without Gerben (actively) behind it, but  
after a bit of off-list discussion, I have decided that these  
directories will continue to exist (with such updates as Gerben may  
decide to make from time to time) at least through the end of 2007 --  
the hardware willing.  If some other person(s) should take over the i- 
installer project, I invite them to write me about taking over the  
administration of these directories on my server as well.

My understanding is that the operators of the other servers on which  
Gerben's packages reside intend to do more or less the same thing,  
though of course I can't speak for them.
