You have shell access to the ASF CVS server, so you can already do 
backups of the repository.  Once more, people are already doing that for 
you.  I suppose you could edit history files, but I really would 
recommend against it.

Sandbox is where things go by default, but I agree that it should get 
promoted out of sandbox from my use of it.  This is an opposite 
direction though of moving JRCS off. :)  are you softening to the idea 
of keeping it here?
