It seems that things are so much in flux that I would be better off either waiting
until at least a beta is done, or staying up to date with the current development.
At least right now it seems like every problem is getting dealt with in a matter
of hours, while it could be days or weeks before alpha3 comes along. If I'm going
to be on the bleeding edge, I want a good view from the front, damn it!

I saw that, but it appeared to only apply if you wanted to commit, I have no
expectation of committing any code back to the project. Of course, if the only way
to do it is to setup that way, then I could just refrain from committing any
changes I make (certainly easy enough). But I did get the impression that
anyonymous read-only access was supposed to be available.
