For svn, why not just go directly with svn.haiku-os.org? Is it currently 
being used?

For the website and Trac, is it not possible to just create a test 
subdomain for each of their respective VMs (ie., testweb.haiku-os.org 
and testdev.haiku-os.org? Once those two installations are tested and 
known to be running OK, then the DNS settings can be modified to point 
to them. Or am I missing something? :)

It would still be convenient if those working on the new server had 
access to the DNS settings; that way, you would not have to rely on 
somebody across the ocean on a different time zone for a change that may 
be required right away. Redundancy is this case is good IMO. ;)
