I thought I'd just drop some lines too (without actually being helpful :).

Sorry for being such a nuisance, but this is not exactly what I'd wish
for it to be. 3rd-party repos should not be clones of the 'master repo'
concerning rules and structures. Of course, minimum standards for these
repos need to be set (e.g.: the ability to compile with a specified
snapshot without major modifications; and of course the coding
guidelines). But if the barriers for new people to contribute are to be
lowered, a small amount of anarchy will need to be tolerated if we want
to get close to the maximum creative channel capacity.

If people have to ask for permission to do anything, in many cases they
won't do it. Becoming a 3rd party developer on CGRAN should consist of
an on-line registration IMHO (including some kind of write-access).

There must be a free web-based 3rd-party-repository-manager out
there, although I haven't seen one with SVN support or similar.
I'll keep my eyes peeled as well. Personally, I don't like any of the
existing C*AN contribution methods (upload forms, email your package
to XXXX...).
