True stuff, yet so far from where we are at.

Totaly good idea ..... Some underlying similarity can be found and
named between disparate solutions to the same problem, surely ... we
all know what it means to maintain our own version of the already
maintained source. And we all know what the benefits would be on

Yeah so that ultimately a patch overal gets approved and integrated
within the cross contribution and distribution. That way we all feed
things reaaonably into the main maintainers stream.
BTS --> generic communication --> naming scheme --> source
repositories --> maintainer for approval.
Maybe even an api to bind CVS, SVN and the other source reps would be
nice, but maybe no one has spare time for some specing and development
... we are all busy maintaining diversity .... ? Even though diversity
is actually the key to what we all believe in ...... tough one ....
