I could provide a mirror site for redundancy with my shared hosting (at
Dreamhost), if that would help. Perhaps just a "hot backup" that could be
enabled if you did lose connectivity or so far a while, rather than working
up a more complicated High Availability system. I assume a brief outage
(eg, hour?) of the bug tracker would not be critical to life.
