Trac/SVN Changes in Progress

Tonight, Monday, May 5th, at 8pm PDT, we'll be deploying a new  
authentication system along with some new Trac templates.  This should  
clear up the rest of the issues with, especially those  
dealing with the login redirecting.  The total work could take a few  
hours, however, Trac will be mostly functional except for brief  
periods. For example, we need to change DNS for HTTPS access, so  
logins will be subject to some propagation delay of about 1 hour.  You  
might also catch the templates in a partially changed state so they  
might look broken. Just please be patient and start reporting problems  
tomorrow morning.

Subversion will not be affected.

As always, I'll be in IRC and try to give everyone a heads up when I  
start breaking things.
