heads up - Machine upgrades this week.

    Both crater and leaf will be upgraded this week.  Either Wednesday or
    Thursday.  We'll try to make it as painless as possible but because we
    are upgrading the boxes from 32 bits to 64 bits there will be services

    * Probable web site down time for a few hours (up to 6).

    * Commits (for developers) may be disallowed for a few hours.

    * Documentation, Mailing list, mailing list archive, and news services
      may be down for a few hours.

    * pkgsrc mirrors will NOT be effected.

    Poor crater is running cvs and git conversion scripts on almost a hundred
    gigabytes of material four times a day and its lowly 2G of ram isn't
    enough.  The only reason it still works 'ok' is it's 100G of SSD

    Poor leaf is in similar straights, handling cgit and gitweb requests
    from various search engines (which we want) and having to deal with a
    multitude of concurrent 300MB+ process images, not to mention developer
    git repos and vkernel images.  With only 3G of ram only its SSD swapcache
    allows it to continue to function.

    Both will be upgraded to Xeon E3 (Sandybridge) based boxes w/16G of
    ECC ram each.  Should be really nice after that, particularly for
    developers who use leaf regularly.

    This will occur Wednesday and/or Thursday if all goes well.
