Yeah, if they're willing to do that. Personally, I'd rather use
mentors.d.n, than a random $VCS repo (even if that repo is under .d.o),
because I'm not interested in installing a new VCS, figuring out where
the repo is (ok, its in the mail, and in the VCS-* fields, but it's
easier to paste a package name than a repo URI, and if I have access to
the VCS-* fields, then I have the sources anyway).

I'll look at VCS repos if and when I'm already reviewing a package, and
am in contact with the maintainer. But if I'm looking at something new,
that I haven't looked at before, I find mentors.d.n more convenient, and
I won't check it's VCS repo (if any).
