I have been given access to svn-qavm and uploaded a tarball of the website
(including mboxes). I'm a bit reluctant to unpack it since it takes almost
7GB, and there is only 14 GB disk space remaining. Is it ok to unpack or
should we ask Infra for more disk space?

The mboxes will be preserved but I don't plan to make them available for
download (since they are not available from lists.a.o or mail-archives.a.o).

No redirector as of now, only the static [s]html pages.

I will need some help from root to:
1. Install a web server. nginx? (just kidding)
2. Setup httpd.conf
3. Configure a DocumentRoot where I can put the files. Doesn't seem right
to store them in /home

Kind regards
