Well IF I had moved everything when I started setting it up on the other 
site and IF I hadn't wait to the last to make the switch probably you 
wouldn't notice the issue at all... Well I got sidetracked by real life 
commitments this week =|

The current update state of roundup is the following:

- the website part of roundup has been setup by Feb 3 (including db 
dump), here is my fault not automatically syncing it from that time...
- the mail integration hadn't been done yet but I could get it working 
tomorrow for sure.
- roundup is currently live and usable from web

Once the mail integration is up we could fill roundup gaps using the 
mailing list as backup. the amount of messages lost is 115 (counted the 
emails from 20080203 till today).
