Please give me a little more time (2 days, max) to get the new
infrastructure up.  Having AUR change now would force me to re-do some
of the preparation steps.

Yes, you need to be added by an administrator, currently that's only me.

Yes, I tend to agree... on the other hand I would like to see us get
off AUR as soon as possible, but in my mind that can only happen once
we have at least one tool that can grab packages out of our ABS tree
(yes, 'bauerbill' I'm looking in your direction ;-).

I don't have access to it.  I know Don has access to that server,
since he has sorted out an issues I've reported in the past.  It also
houses the other haskell mailing lists (cafe, beginners, libs, etc).
