Good idea. I think I will go for gitorious.

I have moved the old sauerbraten git repo to cube2. So the whole history
was preserved. No worries.

Never done that before but I guess contacting the alioth admins should
hopefully suffice.

I haven't seen any different behaviour so far. I'd suggest to unbundle
the enet library as long as this move doesn't cause any problems in
multiplayer mode. There is enough time until the freeze happens, so we
could still revert the change in time, if this move caused a regression.
Red Eclipse also uses the enet system library and I haven't seen any
issues their either thus I'm in favour to give this solution a chance.

Ok, no problem. I was experimenting with cube2-data and bananabread a
little. Currently I think having only one demo package should be
sufficient. Bananabread is not a complete game hence I think creating a
workable demo with less data will also do and we shouldn't promote this
content package as a complete replacement for Red Eclipse, Sauerbraten
or Assaultcube. Less is more in this case but it is still work in progress.
