Hi Pierre,
  please don't Cc me, I read this list. :)

    I was talking about repositories, not a single monolithic
repository: you are free to use cvs, svn, monotone, bzr, darcs or
whatever else you prefer. If every developer would use a common server
for his repositories, it would be easier for the others to find and use

    Note that I don't think that commit rights for all the packages for
all the developers is the right way to go, as we often have different
technical opinions which could lead in a
commit-uncommit-commit-uncommint war. But a common place for repository
would allow to check if a maintainer is already working on a features
**before** I start working on it too, so we don't duplicate the efforts.

I fully agree on your point.
