If the recovery goes OK, it *ought* to be possible to copy the CVS
repository as set of files from old server to new server.
We're hoping for that for Slony-I; we'd certainly like to be able to
preserve that old history.
I'm hearing mixed reviews as to the merits of pgFoundry as an
alternative; apparently it's already somewhat overloaded, so that some
of the admins are concerned about adding more to it. There's some new
hardware (an AMD-64 box of some sort), but it hasn't been fully tested
On the Slony-I side, we're talking over some other options than
pgFoundry; JDBC seems important enough that I would urge making sure
you maintain remote backups of CVS whatever your direction is.
One failure: Shame on them; if it falls over again, and there aren't
good backups, *that* gets embarrassing...
