Oops! You are right. I just assumed collabnet + same name + vanished
project = new project. I have CC:'d the authors of the collabnet
project in the hopes that they can shed some light on this.

I registered on the Clanlib forums in a hope to send a private message
to Magnus Norddahl, who is the original author of svnservice, but they
have disabled PMs on the forum. So I'm not sure how to contact him
without shouting for him in the forums. Anybody else know a way to
contact the author?
