[ros-release] What is the status of code.ros.org?

With some help from Austin I have compiled references to code.ros.org on
the wiki here:


It shows that there are 129 pages which reference `code.ros.org/trac`, 143
pages which reference `code.ros.org/svn` and 7 pages which mention both.
Additionally there are 69 pages which reference `code.ros.org` but neither
`/svn/` nor `/trac/`.

Hopefully this gives us some idea of the scope of the issue.
