OK, we'll aim to action both of these in the next week and get them up
to full power.
@Richard: could you make our ops / sysadmin meetup next Tuesday afternoon?
@Stefano: ditto for you too.
I also mention one alternative that we have been exploring which is to
consolidate material in thedatahub.org and use groups in
thedatahub.org for language or region specific material.
theDataHub.org now has good language support and consolidating there
has the advantage of being part of a larger hub with more activity. In
addition it makes sense to have datasets from different places in one
place (and we're already seeing e.g. italian spending on theDataHub).
We're, of course, very happy to keep maintaining the separate country
instances but it may be worth thinking about whether a consolidation
would make sense in some cases.
