This makes sense to me. 

When we last talked about this a couple of months ago I made some
notes here about different services and namespaces:

I found Google Sitemap generation simple and maybe helpful;
remembering that CoolURIsDontChange and so on, mapping redirects to new 
pages so as little as possible webwise breaks. 

I am really interested in working on prototype sites for different
applications e.g. for the geodata committee and for the UK local
chapter. Generally I would be up for putting a couple of days into the
migration process whatever is needed over the next few weeks... 

I would like to see a trac installation at least being used for
notekeeping of what's being worked on; would this be possible to set
up on the new system soon? (I have no idea what system status is and
forgive any wild overoptimism on my part)
