In my experience, this will only work if everyone chimes in and helps 
maintain things (I grew to dislike doing it all by myself very much). 
Don't do it by yourself (that's something PeterD did for avalon for a 
long time, and I basically took over when he left). Gump integration is 
more about a social process than about technology. Everyone needs to 
care. Slap people in the face (gently :-D) when they don't fix the 
things they break.
