I read on IRC that dcbpw2016 will be hosted on eventbrite and
that they changed all dcbpw.org DNS records so their old Act
instances don't work anymore. It seems that Act server was down
for both days of the workshop, so they decided to get rid of
Act altogether.

Though I understand their decision, this is really sad and now
I'm wondering if there's any interest in keeping legacy Act

I'm willing to take care of this, but I need some help (I have
restricted access to the server and no access to the database).
If you are interested in working together to keep legacy Act
alive, please let me know.
