New Cyrus project site and bugzilla

I'm pleased to announce that we are migrating over to a new website and
bugzilla server today.
The new site is now available at http://www.cyrusimap.org/,
notwithstanding any DNS cache issues (I forgot to lower the ttl, so you
may end up still hitting the old server until later today).
We're very interested in growing the Cyrus project and attracting new
volunteers to contribute to the project, and that desire is at the core
of why this migration is taking place. The biggest change is that we're
trying to separate the environment from Carnegie Mellon University
infrastructure as much as possible. Previously, contributions of any
kind would end up requiring us to create a CMU computer account for a
willing volunteer. We can now simply create local shell accounts as
required. Almost the entire website has been created using MediaWiki
software, so anyone who is willing to register for an account may update
the website content.
There is still a lot of work to do before this migration is complete, so
you may find some stale links, places where I don't yet have redirects
set up from the old servers, etc. If you encounter these, please feel
free to fix them if you already have access, request access to fix them
if you don't, or simply report them.
In particular, the old bugzilla server is currently not running so
nobody may accidentally update things there. If you need bugzilla
access today, you can be sure you're talking to the new server by either
following a link from http://www.cyrusimap.org/ or by directly visiting
Lastly, I'd like to graciously thank Yoni Afek, the web designer who did
the bulk of the work necessary to make all this happen with little or no
direction along the way. Please don't hesitate to contact him at
http://yoniafek.com/ if you require his services.
