Thanks. So the forge ssh and project's web directory are staying for the 
foreseeable future then? The problem is if this facility goes away, we 
need prior notice so we can issue an update and point the next version 
at a new location *before* we move it.

One "feature" which would be very helpful is support for https. Without 
it (currently https is redirected to Trac by the looks of it) we have to 
digitally sign the manifest file and each update notice. Whilst this is 
not hard to do, the app Mozilla provide (McCoy: 
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/McCoy) is really only suitable for a 
single user and needs to be in a fairly secure and controlled location.

So any chance of https to project home directories? Which in this 
instance is: http://vttb3.forge.vtiger.com/
