No skin off my back. I certainly don't take it personally :-) SourceForge
is a fantastic tool. While I can certainly provide a number of resources
(CVS repository, mailing lists, etc), SourceForge does so *actively*.

The XML repository can stay indefinitely. But if people would like to see
it moved, then I can 'tar' it up so that the SF admins can untar the
repository over at SourceForge.

Somebody would have to work on the email'd checkin notices. I don't know
that SourceForge does that automatically. It would simply be a matter of
extracting some of the files from <lyra>/CVSROOT/ and moving them to the
new SF root.
