vasks has the copy of the repositories.

wagner NFS mounts the repositories read-only.

vasks is {git,svn,…}.debian.org (so ssh://git.d.o/ continues working),
making svn:// and similar protocols work requires TCP proxying.

ergo, circular dependencies between the hosts.  This is something we
want to avoid.

I'll add SRV records the moment git and svn support resolving resources
using SRV record, you can have the old names back then.
