Sounds fine to me except #3 - I don't understand it (and I probably
some users will too).
Can you explain it please?
Also, since you mentioned SVN move - should we make an announcement
about SVN move first (or combine it with ABS newsitem)? *shrugs*
(probably this had to be done (as Andy mentioned) as soon as we've
made CVS read-only, but oh well).
P.S.: now (after abs signoff) csup can be removed from Core, I think.
