I'm so sorry to do this -- for reasons that are totally uninteresting,
we were forced to change the repository name (and therefore the URL) of
the Open MPI web site.  As such, anyone using Subversion for mirroring,
the next time your cron job tries to "svn up", it'll get an error
because the repository named "www.open-mpi.org" no longer exists.

Mirrors using rsync are unaffected, although you might get a full
refresh the next time you rsync (we had to do a new checkout on the

The new URL that you need to use is
http://svn.open-mpi.org/svn/ompi-www/trunk.  This has exactly the same
content; it simply has a new repository name.  You will need to change
this immediately (shame on us for not testing this properly ahead of
time -- again, I apologize).

For example:

shell$ cd /path/to/parent/of/docroot
# Assuming your docroot's basename is www.open-mpi.org:
shell$ svn co svn co http://svn.open-mpi.org/svn/ompi-www/trunk
[...lots of output...]
shell$ mv www.open.mpi.org www.open-mpi.org.old
shell$ mv www.open-mpi.org.new www.open-mpi.org
shell$ rm -rf www.open-mpi.org.old

That should do the trick.

Please note that all Open MPI SVN repositories (including the web site
repository) are still down for scheduled maintenance.  They will be down
until 5pm US Eastern time (slightly less than an hour for now).
