Its not entirely clear if you're advocating we wait for this Perforce
replacement before instituting a cannoical Perl 6 repository, or just
mentioning it.

If its the former, then as a rule of thumb when working on a large
project its best to remove as much unnecesarry uncertainty as
possible.  Using a freshly built Perforce/CVS replacement for Perl6
seems like alot of unnecessary uncertainty.

(I just hope I didn't start another Perforce vs CVS war.)

Sourceforge worries me a bit.  Not having direct access to a CVS
repository can be very limiting, and I've found their response times
to administrative requests to be slow (in some cases I've never gotten
a response).  Perhaps we could petition them for ssh access to our CVS

For the time being, I'll set up QA's camp at Sourceforge.

CPANTS will need something similar.  We should coordinate once things
solidify a bit.

This part will be almost trivial.
