We now have the bug tracker and a couple of mailing lists (which are
really a minority, as most bugs are reported to debbugs).  The
proposal to which I was responding was to put the patches on random
remote branches out there, not on a single server.  That would make
the problem unmanageable.

Like Dmitry, you are responding to a proposal different from what was
made, to which I posted my comments.  The proposal was NOT to have a
single server.
