I asked Berlios about their long-term prospects and got this
not-entirely-satisfying reply.  Just thought I'd report it.

The current year is financed and we hope to provide the
service longer.

This isn't exactly a problem, it's a request for
information, namely if you have any concerns about
berlios's long-term viability.  We were hoping berlios
would be a more-or-less permanent home (at least for
the next several years) for TeX Live, but concerns have
been raised that berlios may have to close down.

I know nothing is certain in this life, but are you
reasonably secure at the moment?  Can you allay such fears?

I've looked around on your web site and on the
Internet, but can't find anything recent that seems
especially authoritative.
