Which is fine for an essentially single-user system such as a home
desktop machine, but if you have a group of people who will be building
software for the system, it might make sense to have the sources in a
central location and have those people be members of a group that has
access there.

This leads into a political/philosophical discussion which probably
doesn't belong on this list.
