ok, it has been done finally.
cvs (pserver+ext), ssh (ssh v1 right now, will add ssh v2 tomorrow),
ftp, web, mail lists are working now.

please report any problems you notice in private!

note that the debian->slack change was quite drastic, due to uid/gid
differences, path differences and philosophy differences...
also, the sendmail+qmail -> postfix change was tricky, i had to
reinstall mailman but it seems old lists, archives everything works ok.

temporarily the /home (including ftp, mail and shared) dir is accessed
through NFS from the old mphq box, i'll swap HDDs tomorrow.
so be patient, file i/o will be quite slow due to this, also
please don't do big file moves or (un)compresses today.
