repository to be implicitly reused with this new location and how to 
update your setup.rc similarly.

This will (hopefully) be (fairly) painless for people to convert over to. 
(And even if it isn't, they won't have a choice once I shutdown the old 
server.  :)

I've update the Time Machine webpage on the old site with similar 
information as I've describe here (but with more detail).

For the "TL;DR" crowd:

Old circa prefix was:

New circa prefix is:

I'm giving people two weeks to convert over before yanking the old 

Thank you for your attention. :)
