I know that you had already seen me add that to the ChangeLog, because
you made a new entry after it, but I had indeed neglected to look in

Actually, everything that had been in TODO is now done, except the svn
check-out cron job, so I've replaced the contents of that file
wholesale, expounding on the state of svn. Decisions need to be made
regarding that, especially where to put the repo.

I was not referring to the chroot-preserved system from the now-retired
2U, but rather to the relatively new host outside the chroot. AFAIK, the
only remaining services in the chroot are the MLM and pipermail-apache.
At some point, those could probably be passed to software that can be
installed outside the chroot, so that the chroot can be retired.
