Ubuntu's 'launchpad' project is trying to do that (a SCM 'proxy' of
sorts) with Arch/Bazaar/BazaarNG/Whatever. It takes massive ammounts
of diskpace and computing power to be tracking external cvs/svn repos
in your SCM format of choice. The talked abundantly about this at the
last Debconf in nightless helsinki.

I know I will be running GIT public repos that mirror CVS repos of a
few large-ish projects I work on a lot, and are starting to strain
CVS's ability to coordinate work. I am keen on starting a Wiki on
'git/cogito' techniques and usage strategies, and my first entry is
going to be about how to track an external project this way.
