This strikes me as being a really super thing, having both Subversion
and Git repositories publicly available that are tracking the
Stepping back to the SCM discussion, people were interested in finding
out what merits there were in having these sorts of SCMs, and in
finding out what glitches people might discover (e.g. - like the files
where the CVS repository is a bit schizophrenic as to whether they are
still there or not...). Having these repositories should allow some
of this experimentation to take place now.
I'd be interested in fiddling with a Git repository, at some point;
I'll happily wait a bit to start drawing from one of these existing
ones, to let the dust settle and to let things stabilize a bit.
