Don't start again the SCM thread. This is useless. For now there will be
an access through FTP. I think it is fully acceptable to also have a
rsync access, but i need to check this with my host provided. OVH
specify that their dedicated servers should not be used for mirroring
except... (if you subscribe to an option AFAIK)
