Greetings all,

It is my pleasure to announce that the linuxaudio.org and its subsites have
been successfully ported onto a new server with no observable downtime.

Our new server provides RAID 1, 120GB of disk space, as well as UPS
protection. The IP address and therefore DNS should remain intact. MySQL
databases have been also ported.

A couple of changes have occurred due to this transfer, however:

1) For the sake of heightened security, the server is only accessible via
ssh and sftp (ftp does not work any more)

2) IMPORTANT! During the porting some of the account passwords had to be
unfortunately obliterated. Therefore, all of the current maintainers of the
existing subdomains as well as users of the download.linuxaudio.org mirror,
could you please contact me ASAP, so that I can provide you with the new
temporary password? Once you have obtained the new password, please change
it ASAP (you do not need to inform me of what the new password is).

3) For Tim and Patrick, your user account logins have remained the same as
your mysql logins (since mysql transfer has survived preservation of the
account values).

Should you happen to have any additional questions and/or concerns, please
do not hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes,
