Exactly what I said, A so great number of people having access to gluck
is a security nightmare. That can be done on alioth for SGML files only.
Splitting the cvs tree is a requirement. We could move current HEAD
on alioth and remove makefiles/scripts and authorization files.
So we would have history, logs and write access available soon.
Scripting and webpages could follow on gluck.
