Well that works in theory, but to be realistic about it, it's still
hosted on gerolde and still uses our resources. Were it completely
autonomous, it would be on a separate server like the kdemod project.

So, we do have SOME weight in how this works. Even for the simple fact
that "it's using our bandwidth".
