Currently hosted perhaps (I really don't know), but alternate hosting
could probably be found if the d-i team felt it necessary. I'm fairly
certain that d-i meets all the necessary criteria for Sourceforge or
Savannah, for example.
I want to make it clear that I don't think AJ or the project is trying
to force anyone onto anyone's team, or doing anything else wrong. I'm
simply saying that such an attempt to control the membership of a team
_would_ be futile if the team wasn't willing, so there's little point
in saying that AJ _should_ "just give Sven access". He really doesn't
have that power unless the d-i team is willing to cooperate!
Neither AJ, nor the Tech Ctte., nor even the whole project through a
GR has the power to make Sven a member of the d-i team unless the d-i
team is willing to have Sven as a member.
