This seems like a good idea to me.  This server here is too old to 
support Trac it seems.  I got far enough to get things installed but I 
get segfaults.

I've been using svn on the development side for a few months on another 
project.  I like it.  Those familiar with cvs and not svn shouldn't have 
much trouble adapting.

I suggest that you go ahead and do the cvs->svn conversion and get Trac 
going, unless there are objections? (can't imagine why not)  Do you need 
a raw dump of the CVS directory on the server, or can it slurp it over 
the network?

After Trac/wiki is up we can start migrating content over.  I might 
tweak the graphic design a little.  The stock Trac nav is a little bland 
and very recognizable.

I can also prep the tickets and get them moved over, too.

Thanks, Axel.
