That sounds great - anything that we can do to reduce any individual's
workload as always a good thing.
As I mentioned before, I can think of 2 hosting options worth exploring:
OSGeo would seem to be a good fit, however I seem to remember from
previous discussions that anyone with an OSGeo account also has commit
access to any project. Personally I don't believe this is a good thing,
from either a spam or management point of view. Can anyone related to
OSGeo confirm whether this is still the case or not?
