That can be *easily* done with subversion also. PLEASE wait with such
proposals until the actual need occurs: WHO wants to publish patches,
and what patches specifically?

Please drop it. The backend functionality is entirely elsewhere here:
it's the web server delivering the pages. You are focused too much on
technology, and too little on actual contribution. Please stop making
requests for changes until you have ACTUALLY contributed something useful.

If you dislike this community too much, maybe you should look for a
different one?
