So, I did a quick check of basic operations:

- website is working -> check
  - LibreOffice theming is missing (not mission critical)
  - gitweb is missing (not mission critical)
  - SSL cert warning
- sign in with OpenID -> check
- ssh login for git pushes -> check
- ACL/groups -> at least some groups are missing it seems
  -> I expect direct pushes to master not to work as-is (no group committers)
- buildbot -> missing it seems
- admin login on box -> failed
  - thus I cannot check if the gerritbot sending mails to the dev-list is
- I havent checked where the gerritircbot is running.

So the ACLs for the committer group seem mission critial to me.
@Norbert: Any input on that?

buildbot, gitweb, adminaccess for Bjoern (and others) to check gerritbot, check
gerritircbot, theming are the remaining things in order of importance, none of
those mission critical IMHO.
