Given it'll be a) low traffic, and b) completely temporary until Jim
finishes moving and figuring things out with Microsoft, we could even use
someplace like http://www.cvsdude.org/ to host a repository of IronPython

Does anyone have a subversion repository we can reach? It'd be a nightmare
with CVS, but with subversion it'd be a doddle to import Jim's code and give
all you IronPython doddlers the ability to dynamically add and remove your
own alternative branches.
I should emphasise the idea is *not* to branch IronPython, but to maintain
an easy-to-work-with repository of the fixes developed by Keith, Curt, and
Edd (makefiles are fixes, too!) et al, and tools as developed by Johan et

...which sort of begs another question: If there is to be an 'IronPython
project' ( yes! ) how will that work? Does Jim have time or inclination to
manage this? Should someone else / some group step in / should there be a
process for making decisions like that?
I mean, someone could just start a sourceforge project ( assuming
sourceforge is working again ) but that may not be Jim's preference, or that
of other interested people.
