Thank you for this information.
My home network is a little bit slow to open the urls, whatever, some questions first in my mind first, what's the impact to our geronimo web site? will need to move https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/site/ to another server to use svnpubsub?
Any impact to our documentation system - confluence?
