I got nowhere trying to set up a tunnel with

ssh -C -L3000:localhost:3000

so I guess it isn't running on any more, hence I
started trying to run it locally...

I hadn't considered the "only committers can see it" problem. If it
were to be set up again on, then that issue would
also need to be addressed, perhaps by having a new web page with a
read-only view of things where anyone could view curent
proposals/rejections/votes; of course, only committers would be able
to vote (via ssh) still.
