Announce it by mail too please.

BTW, we should try to make more stuff redundancy. Withough going up to
using DRBD
for VM images, we could:
- for SVN, it's easy to have at least a RO secondary server:
if we stop write access on the master, we could wait for the slave to
keep up with the latest commits, then make it RW
when we need to stop the master.
- for bugzilla, have two VM who perform master-master replication; we
can this way
 I'm not sure bugzilla support writing on both ends, but without
performing load balancing,
 when needed, we could stop access to the active one, wait for
replication to finish, open
 access on the second one
- having more hypervisors and live migrating our VMs off the
hypervisor we update so that
  rebooting it doesn't impact service;
- ...

See you
