Yes, git/repo.or.cz has this "mob" branch which is open for anonymous
pushing.  I like this idea and I think this could turn out to be a
beneficial development model.  It could also be horrible, sure.

I didn't want to bring up the topic of hg vs git, but there is a public
git hosting site (repo.or.cz) which helps making progress without
somebody dedicated providing the infrastructure.

Sure, and I appreciate your interest.  Although we might not share the
opinion on how the access to the code should be structured, we are at
least performing some sort of community activity.  A meta-activity,
granted, but still.

Don't get me wrong, this is not personal.  It's just about the
conceptual model of code access.  You propose a single authority, I
propose a completely distributed model where maybe eventually there will
be one repo which a fraction of the users will consider as "current" or
"stable" "enough".
