I don't think I'm being very rude. I think others are being unnecesarily
rude to those still using icecast1 and who would like a little info on things
like directory server status. I think people do care about icecast1. People
do care about icecast.org. Branching off from the main project is always an
option, yes, but why have to revert to it if other alternatives are available?
At the least, I'll be willing to write a news update for icecast.org if someone
wants to tell me how to get it up there. Not having followed the icecast2
development, I can't really talk about what stage it's in, but if some 
developers want to clue me in, I can write a blurb about that too.
