I think the seperation of core OpenNIC services is not quite obvious, I
am sorry for this.

OpenNIC does not control the registration sites nor the TLDs under
OpenNIC. These are sponsored TLDs by members of the community. It's up
to the administrator(s) of the TLDs to monitor their services.

Core OpenNIC services are monitored via a members service. The
infrastructure team is not private-invite only. All you have to do is
ask to help out. Offer a PoC, etc..... If you think it is a
private-invite only team, here is your invitation to join us, just jump
on our IRC channel #opennic on freenode and meet us.

Onto public DNS monitoring. On the reports list, there are reporting
emails that come through for all to see the status of the T1 and T2
servers. Jeff and Brian have also put in over 100 hours of work to
implement an style system.

This system automagically removes offline servers and what not. This is
only a new feature that has come together after nearly 6 months of work.
This is a brilliant system which is already yeilding great results.

If there is anything you need clarification on please ask. :-)
