Changing servers is a very drastic step. And I also don't like
changing from an open, educational institution to a commercial entity
(we had that discussion already in the thread about our own domain

I'll send them a mail now, asking what we can honestly expect in terms of
responsiveness. Please let's wait until we know more here.
