No.  It has been discussed for a long time that we should work on 
shutting down gborg, but no date was ever put out until this week.  All 
previous discussions involved discussing how to move things over, not 
just giving up and turning it off.  Robert Treat, the person I thought 
was heading the migration believed it was a bad idea to make this sudden 
move.  Even if we gave up on the auto-migration, how can a couple of 
days be sufficient warning for large parts of our project infrastructure 
to disappear?

Perhaps it's just my perspective and this doesn't actually affect a lot 
of people, but the two main projects I work on are (were) big gborg 
users.  How are people supposed to coordinate a release without a 
mailing list or a CVS repository?
