This time I would like to setup a schedule to migrate to the new server (

This migration may need some downtime on the subversion, trac, and svnmanager services because we do not want to have any inconsistencies in SVN and or trac database.

I have already rsynched the 1) boost SVN repository including its hook script, 2) trac db, and 3) SVNManager and its database.

Do you have any hidden processes to manage the subversion repository, trac, or SVNManager?

I implemented some simple testings with some SVN activities on the new server and it seems to work fine.

Can anyone volunteer to play with the migrated SVN repository, trac, and SVNManager on the new server?

I can test the very basic stuff and I may miss some functionalities of the current services. If anyone who actually work on the boost project can check this out, it would be much appreciated. I would feel much safer.

1. The downtime that we may have while migrating
    I expect that TTL value be changed to 1hour or so. While the new DNS entries are populated, the current server will NOT service and the new server will instead.
