   right, but that's what we're considering, isn't it?

Are we? In either case, Savannah has support for GNU Arch now, so if a
new repository is needed there is no real problem in changing VCS's
for a new code base when such a code base exists.

I didn't have a look at arch, but I'll do so.
Anyway, are there chances Hurd/coyotos will be hosted on an arch repo?

   Maybye, but giving commit access _after_ the developer has
   contributed much code is completely against the Ofun paradigm.

Could you clarify why having commit access is a requirement for
actually starting to hack?  When I start, I just modify my local tree,
and work on that until I'm happy with the result.

It's just a basic -Ofun paradigm to give access, AFAIUI. I didn't invent this.
