I'm pretty sure in the end this was limited to more like 2-3 days; if
there was a project that lost 2 months I'd like to know which project
that was to fix that problem...

If there isn't already we/I should nudge the savannah hackers to allow
project owners to easily get backup copies of their data; just because
you have a project hosted somewhere doesn't mean it doesn't make sense
to also have your own local copy :)

Man I need to find time to work on again...

Cheers, (and back from a week of illness),
