Not to bite the hand that feeds us but this outage seems a bit much.  I
realize that savannah is provided free and maintained by volunteer time
but 2 weeks is painfull.

Also, did anyone get the diffs savannah was supposed to send out from the
Sept 16 vs current.  I was asked if I had verified our source was not
trojaned but I've not seen any diffs yet to verify :(

I have never used arch.  I'm using subversion internally at math and for a
personal project as well and really like it.  The one down side to it, if
you can call it that, is that new releases happen alot and you have to
dump/restore the repository during upgrades to be safe.

That might work but would still require we put a copy of the source up
somewhere so that others could get a current copy.  If we're going to do
that we may as well migrate gnue into the subversion install on ash for
the time being and give access to the people actively making changes.
Then when/if cvs is back up we'd have 1 massive "sync" patch (which would
suck) if we decided to move back.

Take Care,
