[Snowball-discuss] Mailing list and CVS move

As Martin intimated, he and I have decided to move the snowball hosting
from SourceForge to a host more directly under our control (ie, on which
we have unrestricted shell access, amongst other things).  This will
allow us to provide better access to the mailing list archives (the
current ones being unavailable for a significant proportion of the time,
and encumbered with adverts when they are available), have direct access
to the CVS repository which helps when moving things around, and make my
website update scripts convenient and reliable.

The sourceforge project will be left, but will simply contain pointers
to the new location.

The new mailing lists have been created: I will be configuring them and
copying the subscriber list over this evening.  I will then post a
message closing down the mailing lists, and announcing the new address.

I will also be copying the CVS repository to the new location (and
pruning it of some large tarball files which are no longer current). 
Anonymous CVS checkout will be supported.

I hope this doesn't cause too much trouble to anybody: I will do
everything I can to make the move as smooth as possible.


PS: Martin: apologies for this taking so long.
