[Dev] SVN conversion status update

Thanks to Bear for pulling this all together!

As for ViewCVS, it's temporarily at http://viewcvs.o11n.org/ , but as  
soon as Chris is able to procure a new CNAME (DNS entry) for me, it  
will live at http://viewcvs.osafoundation.org/

We can leave the old viewcvs installation (which is hooked up to the  
old CVS repository) in place so that links from old commit messages  
continue to work.

The biggest remaining problem is that the svn commit mail archive is  
a little broken.  For example:


Our mailing list archive program strips out HTML attachments and then  
"escapes" their content so they don't render properly.  Ideally  
SVN::Notify could send HTML and plain text versions of the commit  
messages I guess.
