Hello fedora-admins and fi-apprentices
I have been lurking in #Fedora-admin and such waiting for a chance to lend a hand, so I though I would do some basic QA of this new environment, below is what I have found so far.
1. if a "environment(project)" does not have a defined logo, the default(global) one is not displayed like the current live trac instance does
missing logo "Fedora, HOSTED, Start a Project; watch it grow" https://fedorahosted.org/web/static/images/fedora-hosted-banner.png
https://fedorahosted.org/amber  (live env)
https://fedorahosted.org/amber (test env)
2. there are several projects that have a mailing list defined on their trac::wiki page, that no longer work, am not sure if this an actual issue, since the previous email stated "email would not work on this new test environment" or if the email lists were not migrated (am guessing at that last statement),  the links work on the live environment, I assumed you would be able to see the email list for that project but only up to the time of the data sync, and excluding any new emails received after the data sync..... ( I did not check every project for a mailing list url)
3. the "default  documentation for trac" is still version 10.4, hm, or specifically the environments(projects) that have not yet created a wiki start page say "Welcome to TRAC <version number>" where version is dependent on what version of trac was installed in fedorahosted.org  when the project was created/added, which seems reasonable as the upgrade process should not change the wiki page for an environment(project). 
projects where it seems no wiki page was created.
10.4 trac default documentation example (test env) go to https://fedorahosted.org/baraha-maps/wiki     ( Welcome to TRAC 10.4)
10.5 trac default documentation example (test env) go to https://fedorahosted.org/MAKEDEV/              (Welcome to TRAC 10.5)
perphaps we could update the wiki start pages in those projects so the version is correct.
Could some one confirm we did the following, just to make sure
4. the muffin project seems to have issues..  "the action that trigger the error: GET: /wiki"
Well I think thats enough for now.. I`ll move on to git next...
I hope it helps make the new fedorahosted work as designed

As we recently announced, we are working on migrating fedorahosted.org
over to a newer instance or instances. We announced and held a activity

Which resulted in the following plans:

Per those plans, we have setup a RHEL6 test instance of
fedorahosted.org and would like to ask people to test against it for
issues or problems.

How to test:

edit your local /etc/hosts file and add:   fedorahosted.org git.fedorahosted.org
svn.fedorahosted.org hg.fedorahosted.org

Then your requests will go against the new instance.
Simply use trac, your scm and anything else as normal and note any
issues or problems. The only thing that is disabled on this test
instance is email. Please note any changes you make will be LOST. This
instance is just for testing and will be resynced to real content from
time to time.

If you could collect results and mail them to this list
(infrastructure) that would be best for now.

Please do remember to remove the /etc/hosts entry when you are going to
go back to the live/production instance.

If we don't see any nasty issues by monday, I will announce more widely
for more testing. Then, hopefully by next wed we can decide if moving
to rhel6 is going to be easy/feasable in the time we have.

Thanks in advance for any testing.
