Me too, actually :)

In the meantime, Cesar Mendoza has been accepted as a developer, and I think
we'll be able to complete the transition in a day or two. I'll keep you
posted (or bug you to use your admin powers to change stuff when we need it :)

Actually, there's already something I need you (as admin) to do: change all
files in /org/www.debian.org/lists.debian.org that don't have debwww group
