didn't know that...hmm. We do have a few, don't we?

sounds good to me, but maybe I'm missing something....avalon 
people...objections anyone?

that's our plan, 't is. We're not in a hurry (always lots of things to 
do ;). my top-of-head list:

- link/rename cvs
- move some things around in cvs
- steal as much as possible from the ant people; they seem to be 
handling their move pretty well ;)
- learn about how the website is published and updated, see if it is 
smart & feasible to use forrest
- clean up the website (someone calculated avalon's got an 80 meg 
website, somewhat ridiculous)
- move website
- figure out how to properly publish distributions, and where, and what 
access it requires
- set up distribution mirroring
- rename mailing lists (someone said somewhere I think that this might 
be somewhat difficult; it's not a high priority)

I need to do some reading and figure out some stuff before I can be more 
specific; if you feel like being proactive and doing stuff before we 
figure out how to do it, great, if not, questions will come in due time!

We're basically in the same boat as ant, and likely james in some time 
(all moving out of jakarta). If any infrastructure peeps have some smart 
ideas or suggestions on that (or pointers to server layout docs 'n stuff 
which I can't really find), they're very welcome.
