So there is some delay due to a combination of timezones and a minor
technical issue mail notifications (which we prefer to have working)...
...should be a day or two more.
During this delay, it is totally okay push to the repository, a notice
10 minutes before the move will go out (even then individual commits can
be moved after the fact).
