Just to be clear, what I wrote above is my opinion, and this is  
something that the whole Heraldry community needs to agree with,  
particularly (but not limited to) Paul, who objected to the most  
recent commit.   So we need to discuss this a bit more and take a  
vote.  But I was pointing out that I think that there is a way  
forward from where we are on the svn thing.

Even when that happens, we'll still have some work to do.   We'll  
still have the LGPL thing to deal with, and also we still need to go  
through and do the IP clearance stuff required by incubation: <http://>

I took a look over at this archives for this list.  I think that this  
would be a good start, but I do think that we'll need to have even  
more participation/transparency than is happening on this list.    
It's not just the quantity of traffic that matters it is also the  
substance.   But a good first step towards the kind of environment  
that we need to have.
