It is probably possible to find somebody to host the Python CVS and
offer enough connectivity to give more performant service than
SF. However, there is more to hosting such a service: You need user
management, email notifications, backups, and occasional hand-editing
of the CVS repository. I would expect that it might consume
significant time (several hours a week) to host the Python CVS. (Time
per project reduces if you host several projects)

So from your message, I still don't see who could be taking over the
Python CVS. Skip, did you have anybody specific in mind?
