Either Tim, Chris, or both will help with this.    If we can't migrate 
everything by script, we'll have to give up on the idea.  Some projects, like 
JDBC, have huge mailing list archives.

I think you would want to do the migration "all at once", though.   Putting up 
a page explaining that the CVS is on GForge but the mailing lists are non 
GBorg for a week would confuse the heck out of people, I think.

Since both systems are based on postgresql databases, migration should be the 
simple expedient of writing the right Perl/PHP+SQL script.

Terrific!
