• Call-out to Othernet administrator/coordinators

    From Rob Swindell@1:103/705 to All on Wed Apr 1 16:13:11 2020
    So I've been working on this wizard-style installer for FidoNet and FTN-Othernets in Synchronet (v3.17c+).

    It's a pretty automated process setting up FidoNet zone 1, fsxNet and AmigaNet,
    (mainly because their echolists are http[s]-gettable).

    You can look at the data file that this script uses here: http://cvs.synchro.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/ctrl/init-fidonet.ini?view=markup

    Currently represented are FidoNet zones 1-4, fsxNet, Agoranet, AmigaNet, and VKRadio net. If you are the administrator/coordinator of a network incorrectly or under represented in this file, please let me know the details.

    I'm also interested in getting more details about FidoNet zones 2-4 (coordinator, downloadable echolist location, info web-site, etc.) if anyone can provide that info or links to same. Thanks, -Rob
