[SAC] Subversion vhost migration underway

Several users were/are taking advantage of the wildcard DNS to reference the repositories with paths like:
https://osgeo.org/svn/fdo <https://osgeo.org/svn/fdo> 
Is there any way to re-enable that path on the www vhost until these users get switched over?  I misunderstood the impact of the changes and indicated in my note that these aliases would continue to work until the wildcard DNS was pulled.

I have flipped the switch on the DNS, and the subversion virtual host 
migration is underway.  The TTL was set to 6 hours a couple of days 
ago (after being turned down to 1 day more than a week ago), so the 
new DNS should propagate fairly quickly.  After some time for DNS to 
propagate, we'll flip the switch back on for the repositories.

Note that it is expected that both http://svn.osgeo.org/gdal and 
http://svn.osgeo.org/svn/gdal will continue to work as repository 
URLs, but the shorter one is the preferred one.  At some indefinite 
point in the future, we will quit answering to /svn/gdal.

After the repositories are back up, at your leisure you may do:

svn switch --relocate http://svn.osgeo.org/svn/gdal http:// <http:///> 

and all should be well.
