No problem.  Just mail me a list of the developers and the name of
the "project" and I'll set it up for you.  Things are pretty hectic
right now and I haven't automated this process, so it may take a couple
days for me to get it done.

For now, I'll set it up so only people in the group you mail me can write
to it.

I've passed this on to the CVS maintainer and asked him if he could include
those patches in the Debian package.

Somebody is free to take it if they want.  I think you overestimate the
amount of bandwith used, though.  Unless we're archiving the entire
source tree with all developers using it, I sincerely doubt there will
be any problems.
