Do we really want to live on with SourceForge(t) ?
It seems to be pleasant for small projects, but
maybe it would be more convenient to have a CVS
that we control directly?
The new starship is very powerful and could stand a couple of
CVS repositories easily.

While one might argue that this would give to much of Python
to BeOpen (they got it already:), I think this could work
