I'm backupping svn.debian.org, cvs.alioth.debian.org, arch.debian.org
and lists.alioth.debian.org archives on a daily basis, with
increased-interval history[1], since halfway April 2005 (along with many
regular debian.org services which now probably largely superseded by the
official backup server). I started those after having talked to DSA
members in Vancouver, and the consequent (there was no relation to that,
though!) disk mayhem on gluck.

About the alioth backups, I did at least talk about this with Wichert,
and I thought I mailed about it with the alioth admins too, but I
definitely mailed about it with DSA (which incidently also includes
Wichert on the email address I used).


[1] Roughly 7 different backups, spanning a month.
