I think the package is usable today, but it really needs some debugging,
so I would say
dump your db with the new from 2.6
install a 2.5 on a test server, restore the db with
and then migrate to 2.6, test, send bug reports :-)

It's the less you can say about stats, it seems to me to be less
complicated on 2.6, but is still
awful to make work. It deals with many things like apache logs, and
there is few information
on how it should work really.
I would say that it has to be rethought.
I did the work only for cvs, you can find this in the cvs, but it's not
It works with a lot of temporary tables and complicated/ few-documented

For the moment, I only tested like this, but feel free to try to make it
work on several servers

And theme are fully customizable, you can completly change the SF look
if desired, and add new functionnality
It's better to use the rebuild from CVs since some work and bug
corrections were made since the now old last upload.

Sure, it's something very interested, I recommend you to join Jerome
Marant (two-face on IRC) the sympa packager
if you decide to do this. He told us his desire to collaborate.
Everything has been done to make this possible in 2.6 by creating a
sourceforge-lists-sympa sub package
We can either integrate this in the sourceforge package or as a
supplemental external package

Thank you and happy hacking :-)
PS: Of course we will be happy to sponsor the package.
