Project relocation update

Okay, I heard mostly positive feedback from folks about relocating this
project's assets to Google Code.

One concern that was raised was regarding the ability to fully migrate the
history of this mailing list to Google Groups.  Apparently, Groups doesn't
support any mechanism for importing old mboxes or the likes, so we'd need to
make a clean break.  Alternatively, we could continue to use this list for a
while with a new Google Group shadowing the discussion.  Or we could use
this list indefinitely.  For now I'm taking option #2, shadowing this list
with a new Google Group.

As far as the process of migrating accounts to Google Code, I think it will
again be a manual process.

The source code migration should be easy with svnsync.

And that leaves the Trac migration.  We don't have that many open issues, so
I'll probably just duplicate the open ones in the Google Code tracker.  And
while I'm there, I'll look at porting any live Wiki pages over, too.

I'd like to make this cutover ASAP, beginning with the source code
repository.  Anybody object?  There's such a low activity level here, I
think it's fine for me to say right now:  "Change is coming.  I don't know
when, but one day you're going to wake up and not be able to commit to the
red-bean repository.  Deal with it."  :-)
