As stated before The Xfce SVN repository and the remaining xfce projects 
on espresso will move to mocha coming week. Here's a brief update on 
status and planning:


- https is setup and running with a test certificate at 
https://www.xfce.org/. This will not be the final location, I'd rather 
have 'https://xfce.org/' for that, but the problem with https is that 
the certificate always needs to have the same hostname as the vhost.

- DAV and HTTPS authentication is setup. All users and translators can 
now get their accounts for https access to the new repository as soon as 
it's ready

- The SVN repo is rsyncing already making the final rsync very quick, 
this will minimize downtime for the SVN tree next week.

- You can follow and already check out from the rsynced tree at 
http://svn.xfce.org/ and even use websvn from there (until the final 
rsync this may *break* your local svn copy!)

- the password changing interface is up too, devs can change their https 
passwd with the info they receive in the mail.

- most likely I will reroute xfce.org/~user to 
users.foo-projects.org/~user. I need to think about this - I really want 
to move all xfce vhosts to mocha but that breaks for the user directories.


- preparation for svn is almost done, no more work on that today
- monday or tuesday: finalize move of SVN, allow limited svn access to 
core devs
- monday or tuesday: pick up shipment from europe in Portland harbour
- wednesday: allow developer SVN acces to all devs, move all xfce 
project pages
- thursday+friday: sentry duty fixing broken webpages and user account
