they biggest problem i see is the user migration.
unfortunately, all the puredata.info users are currently stored within
the zope-db; it they were stored in an ldap-server, the user credentials
could be used for cvs/svn/git/... authentication.

i currently don't know how to migrate the users from zodb to ldap.
