One measure that should increase our project security would be to enable 
SSL on our Trac and Subversion server, to reduce the risk of password 

James, would that be hard for you to do? I did it the other day for our 
company Subversion server and it "just worked" with the standard Apache 
SSL configuration.

Perhaps we could even group together to pay for a real SSL certificate 
(blech!) or get an OpenCA certificate?

Cheers, Chris.
