I think I'll do just short stint with it, so "help" can be that you
remain the main developer. ;-)

Yes. Some hosting solution would be nice, but meanwhile my top
priority is to ensure that freeciv.net codebase itself is not left
behind when freeciv goes forward. Maybe some day, someone, will build
servers for it, but only if we have codebase (s)he can use.

I've since got it running from version I produce by patching
mainstream freeciv. I've started updating it to work with newer
freeciv. Instead of trying to update to current freeciv at once,
breaking absolutely everything and having not much to start revival
attempts from, I'm going up in freeciv revisions in shorter steps -
update freeciv.net to work with one revision and then with next one
(so far I've used steps of about 500 revisions) My current freeciv.net
version is based on freeciv revision 17501. From the freeciv
changelogs it seems that there's some hard to proceed parts coming up
(bitvector network protocol changes etc)
