Hi folks,

this is just a brief notice to let you know what's been going on in  
the past couple weeks.

As you may have noticed (or not), we moved to a new provider for  
various of our services related to scummvm.org. In particular, the  
forums and wiki are hosted at this new provider. The main website  
will remain at SF.net, as that way everybody on the team has easy  

We plan to move some more things in the hopefully not so distant future:
* Mail (for mail forwards, but also mailboxes; we'll have POP3&IMAP,  
and simple webmail, for those who want it).
* Public FTP -- we have plenty bandwidth left, so we could experiment  
with hosting some things like demos.

The main motivation for this move was reliability (no more unexpected  
forums/wiki downtimes -- well, unless we screw up ourselves :). In  
addition, now all three project leads have full control over  
everything (or at least once the move is complete, we will have).  
Thus we avoid the current single point of failure scenario (or, if  
you prefer that wording, we improved our bus factor *g*).
