The site slowness has been solved, but the sysadm couldn't find a way  
to convert the old passwords from the previous site.

On the login page for the projects site;
You can see the hint how to solve it.

By using the "lost password" option once, the system will reset a  
password for you. CVS and web access then goes as usual.

However; the choice to use ssh also involves that for each cvs command  
a password is requested. That's not very nice in the workflow...  
Luckily the Gforge system allows to upload an encrypted key, which is  
something the sysadm intends to activate soon; but he prefers to solve  
all feedback and remaining issues with the new server first.

Of course we could evaluate why ssh was added for cvs... sysadms I talk  
to seem to consider non-secure access to csv an unacceptable risk  
Related to that, advised also was to purchase a https license (SSL), so  
we can use that for all pages where passwords could be intercepted.
