I simply do not understand all this talk of "server IP addresses".

Don't you people use the DNS?  If you don't you really MUST.  It hides
all this nonsense from you.  It was designed in part to facilitate
exactly these types of migrations and to make them transparent!

The only trick is that you've got to understand the importance of naming
conventions when you choose the DNS hostname (or cname) for your CVS
server.  You don't want to get into a quandry over which service it's
easier to change the name for!  ;-)

(Of course if you haven't been using the DNS then you're still stuck in
the same boat and you'll have to manage the "name" migration anyway.)
