We're moving away from the old web server because Ivan bought a new
machine which is racked elsewhere. Since today, the main website is
being hosted on sunjammer (DNS caches are still updating).

Your account is "cms" and you can access it by logging in as
cms at people.sugarlabs.org using ssh, scp, sftp and so on. (we could also
enable ftp-over-ssl, if necessary).

The public ssh key you were using on solarsail is also installed on
sunjammer. If your old account on sunjammer expired, you can re-enable
it by simply setting a new password at
https://ldap.sugarlabs.org/passwd .

The main website is available in 3 different sandboxes:

  http://www.sugarlabs.org          /srv/www-sugarlabs/www
  http://www-testing.sugarlabs.org  /srv/www-sugarlabs/www-testing
  http://www-devel.sugarlabs.org    /srv/www-sugarlabs/www-devel

You have write access to all three, but please upload your changes only
to www-devel and www-testing. The general idea of this three-staged
setup is that web designer can experiment as much as they like in the
devel environment, then move their work to testing for validation, and
finally a sysadmin moves the pages to the production environment

If you need faster turnaround, I don't mind you doing also the last
step, but it needs to be done locally, from a shell account to minimize
the amount of time during which the web site remains in a transient
state with inconsistent content and broken links.

NOTE: I'm seeing some very large files in static/soas. Are they still
linked from anywhere? If so, can we move them to the download area where
they're mirrored on our CDN?
