ECL now at common-lisp.net

The CVS server in Sourceforge has been causing us problems since the very beginning, with both anonymous and developers access failing every now and then.

Motivated by this, and also because it feels like the right place to host this project, ECL has been partially moved to the Common-Lisp.net server.

In particular I moved the CVS tree from SourceForge to there and set up a simple webpage
that redirects you from http://common-lisp.net/project/ecl/ to http://ecls.sourceforge.net

Summing up:
Mailing list, RSS feeds, releases and webpage remain in Sourceforge.
Developers & anonymous CVS move to Common-Lisp.net as of today.

As for anonymous CVS, it should be available with some delay (15 minutes according to the documentation in common-lisp.net). The commands are the usual ones, but I allowed myself to change the name of the directories to match the name of the project (something we could not do before because of the other ECL project)

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@common-lisp.net:/project/ecl/cvsroot co -P -kk ecl
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@common-lisp.net:/project/ecl/cvsroot co -P -kk ecl-test

Or, in more modern versions of CVS:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous:anonymous@common-lisp.net:/project/ecl/cvsroot co -P -kk ecl
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous:anonymous@common-lisp.net:/project/ecl/cvsroot co -P -kk ecl-test

Have fun,

Juanjo
