CVS is web-1.0.  Boo on CVS!  And SF!  Actually I think SF has svn 
now...?  Or Berlios.  It takes a while to set up, so it should be set up 
right away.  python-hosting.com also offers free Trac and svn to open 
source projects.  Or lastly I can throw up another repository on 
webwareforpython.org, which has a couple repos already; if nothing else 
is ready in time that's a good fallback.

Or we could be all web-3.0 and use bazaar-ng (http://bazaar-vcs.org/). 
That is probably a bad idea, though.

Probably best, even if I suspect this is going to drive me nuts.  My own 
fault for having a messed up Python install on my laptop.  I've never 
configured Postgres to be open over the network (only local socket 
connections); but potentially I could also set that up.  You'd still 
need psycopg then.

We can make this at the office; hot 'n' thrifty.

Before 10am?  That would have been crazy.
