That makes two .ca posters missing the rhetoric in my question; is
that enemy action? :-)

More seriously:

- should the repo be moved? sourceforge isn't looking good

- is it time to change the technology; and if so, do-it-right and
question everything including repo layout; and provide a clear
rationale as to why it is or isn't pratical; Having worked with both
systems, it really is just a trade off.

- do we really want to buy "IBM" :-)
