Interesting idea, on which I would need to do more reading.


The main problem is that Groklaw doesn't publish it's code base. The
fact that Geeklog uses CVS doesn't prevent this. It's easy enough to
track an external repository against a local repository, merging in
your changes and publishing your source.

Just because we don't use Git or Mercurial doesn't mean they can't
publish their source. Switching to Git or Mercurial equally doesn't
mean they will.
