How about this...

Due to the `integration centric' nature of vserver queries, issues
like this are probably more easily resolved if you join the IRC
channel at:

Server: irc.oftc.net Port: standard (6667) Channel: #vserver

One or two of the core team are usually hanging around in there. In return for this unprecedented level of `support' from an Open Source project, it would be very much appreciated if you summarise the discussion, and what the final solution to the problem was (even if there was no solution), as a reply to your original question to the vserver list. This makes the mail archives an invaluable tool for other vserver system integrators and managers.

If you are unfamiliar with irc, please see http://www.foad.com/ -- An IRC log is a good idea, but not very easily searchable. -- Sam Vilain, sam_at_vilain.net
