I'm loving distributed VCS too, but in this case we're talking
about keeping the binding separated so don't see a reason for
a fork.

I've an unofficial copy of geos svn on github.com/strk
Would love to see osgeo provide a git infrastructure.
Unfortunately github uses proprietary software for that.
But code used by gitorious.org is free-as-in-freedom.

All in all it's not important _where_ you put the code, if it's
in a git repo you can still share the efforts. Don't need the
web buttons for doing forks and pull requests.
