i agree. that's why i started a git repo and working out the details. i 
communicated that a few times on this mailing list over the past few months as 
well. you can find a link to the git repo both earlier in this thread as well 
as at the end of this email..

there are 5 personal repository clones of it on at this point.

and while we wait ..? and once it's there how does someone get push access? 
through the same long processes that have been holding others up for quite 
some time? i no longer believe in the centralized system of management and 
control that goes on around fortunately, we don't need it. 
there are other resources out there that are much more open with which we can 
work on work.

why wait? you can start immediately:

i'm happy to add you to the project members list as well so you can push 
directly into the main repository if you'd like.

and if's git hosting meets the needs at some point, it's 
trivial to push the repo there. in the meantime we don't have to wait. we can 
actually DO.
