Ok, but as Javi also said, having 2 CVSes for the same thing (scripts)
is evil. So we would have all stuff on Alioth and move scripts
(after auditing by DDs eyes) to gluck when needed.
A nice script could be written to checksum scripts and create a signable
list of trustable scripts on alioth. Then, another script on gluck
could import only files in that list after proper checking.
One of the PMs could so sign the list when all its files
had been checked.
This could ensure that only coherent and trustable scripts are used
on gluck, and could avoid error-prone human-based copies.
