An interesting thought. A system based on MojoNation (or an opensource
version of it), darcs, and perhaps a distributed compiler cache system would
make a very nice start at an open source archive. Add in a nice webpage for
searches and news (which I suppose could be handled by freshmeat), and you'd
have a great system. Not a total replacement, but enough to handle the HUGE
demands that SF.net now has to deal with.

You may say that you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.
