I'd like to suggest a small delay in 'pulling the plug' on sourceforge.

After some informal chats with Steve, Kylie, and others last Monday
afternoon, I started to try to work out the best way to set up a
repository for existing docs, and also consider how we all can readily
access either that repository or a mirror of same.

Whatever the problems with sourceforge, it seems to me it has the
following advantages.

 - accessible 24 x 7
 - accessible australia wide
 - already set up, complete with mailing list.

If people are agreeable, I'm happy to review its potential use to us. 
Perhaps I can go through the routine of uploading some of our tech docs
as a test to check out any problems, and report them to the group.

Just trying to avoid re-inventing the wheel :-)

Hope this helps
