As Debian moves more and more into developing countries, where
Internet access is not (yet) ubiquitous, this seems like a step
backwards. Ideally, the history should be on the source DVDs.

I am strongly in favour of something like git.tar.gz. joeyh's
implementation may not be what we end up with. But it's a start. Now
we can let time tell how to do it. Let the competition begin!
