Yeah, I think it makes sense. Some things we do:
- provide hosted network services for collaborative development,
testing, and discussion, of open-source projects
- administer, improve, and extend this suite of services as necessary
- assist open-source projects in their use of these services
- purchase, lease, or subscribe to, computing and networking
infrastructure allowing these services to be run

Cheers,
Daniel
