Maybe someone like, oh, XS4ALL? <wink>.

Last time I talked to Thomas, re moving mail.python.org, he seemed to be
totally unconcerned about bandwidth.

+1 on Subversion too, but I still say the biggest problem is finding the
cycles to set up and maintain the infrastructure.  It was an
overwhelming task when we did it ourselves with a fraction of the user
and developer community, and I was glad when we moved to SF.  If the
Gforge installation Andrew was talking about can really be set up and
babysat with as little effort as claimed, I think that's worth looking
