Then leave things as they are and we'll await developments.
Yes, Ilkotech is expressing a hope to revive CIA. For various reasons
both technical and political I am near certain the effort will go
nowhere. From #cia:
[17:19] Talad Hi
[17:19] Talad the CIA bot in our channel is gone
[17:20] Talad how to restore it ?
[17:20] shadowm /topic
[17:20] shadowm (Old news at this point, really.)
[17:21] Talad what is the problem?
[17:21] AI0867 the server was deleted
[17:21] AI0867 the version running on it was never checked into version
control, nor was it backed up
[17:22] AI0867 in short, CIA is *gone*
[17:22] AI0867 for a replacement, see #irker or http://www.catb.org/~esr/irker/
[17:25] The_Tick BearPerson: do we know if there was a backup of the
database holding all the configs?
[17:26] BearPerson There might be one on a hard drive somewhere in my
apartment, but it'd be at least 2 years old at this point
[17:26] BearPerson haven't gotten around to digging up that box yet
[17:26] The_Tick might be worth pulling the emails out and shooting
everyone an email explaining the situation
[17:27] The_Tick so they stop coming in here asking about it
[17:30] Talad "the server was deleted" <- by the owner?
[17:32] Talad maybe CIA was discussed/agreed with freenode staff
[17:32] Talad and they have a copy of it?
[17:32] The_Tick doubt it
[17:33] Talad I guess they are careful about widespread bots like CIA
[17:33] shadowm No, freenode had nothing to do with running CIA.vc.
[17:34] shadowm And the server was deleted by the hosting company, while the
current owners did not have a backup plan at all.
[17:36] Talad I see
[17:36] Talad ok, thanks
On the other hand contrib/ciabot isn't taking up a lot of space in
your tree, either, so there's little harm in leaving it in place.
