Thanks for the brainstorming!
If we can upgrade the .net server then I'm happy. It's a good time
to get a new mirror of .org site onto the .net machine.
The theme is customised from spreadfirefox.
Upgrading the modules will probably be the toughest part. Last time
I started to think about upgrading, all the modules we needed weren't
yet ported to 5. I think it is good now.
At the end of it all I'd like to add step 10: set up daily copy
of .org -> .net server.
If you want to start on some of these steps, I fully support it - at
least getting us up to step 8 :)
