The trick with a community repository is that you're really talking
about creating a bunch of independent repositories, rather than one
big one. Hans doesn't want me committing my sloppy code into his
project, I'm sure.

So whatever you choose, make sure the administrative overhead of
creating new repositories and assigning commit rights is handled in an
elegant way. And if you need to invent that wheel, that's a great seed
project for the new repo. Nothing like eating your own dogfood...
