After months of absence, Typosphere has returned from the dead!
We migrated off of Planet Argon and onto DreamHost, where we should have more control.
We also upgraded to Trac 0.10.3 and turned off anonymous editing (users now have to register to file a ticket).
This should (hopefully) prevent the issue that lead to Typosphere dying in the first place.
One important thing to note is that as part of this process, we also moved the subversion repository.
Unfortunately, the old repository was hosted as an svn:// URI using the typosphere.org domain, which meant
there was no way to preserve this URI (since we can’t run long-lived background daemons on DreamHost). The
new URI uses http and a new subdomain, so if necessary we can move the repository without moving the website.
The new repository URL is http://svn.typosphere.org/typo/trunk.

Well, I finally bit the bullet and upgraded my blog from the Typo stable release to the HEAD of the svn trunk. I wasn’t going to do this for a while, because of the complexity in keeping site-specific changes away from my Typo hacking, but I ran across this article that explained how to use svk to manage all this for me, and now I’m testing it out. Hopefully everything will work fine, but if anything weird goes on, you’ll know why.
If you notice anything wrong that doesn’t go away shortly, please, leave a comment telling me what the problem is, or if comments are a problem, send me an email about it.
