Can I be of any assistance in this? I have an instance running on
Amazon that is slated for the new scipy.org box. Is anyone willing to
work with me to help migrate these things (or install a brand new
spanking instance of Trac on this separate machine, perhaps powered by
Postgres)? Would that be of any help? My problem is that having the
one scipy.org box right now that is critical does not allow me much
freedom to make a mistake which could possibly result in the scipy.org
box being down for some time (in order for me to back out of it)...
