Mohammed, how is this less overhead ? You will still have to maintain
everything (Gnats, CVS, users, shells, qamoose, etc.etc) and curse SF on
any issue that they won't help with (or is a quirk).
Arabeyes web page will be on SF, everything else will be on arabeyes -- so
what's the point ? I see a need for say arabeyes.sourceforge.net (like fvwm
does) for the few cases when arabeyes is down (hurricanes, rough party at home,
etc :-); but other than that I don't see it.
The only pro's that I got out of this is the following,
1. more bandwidth
2. more stable
3. less cost (ie. your phone-bill thingie :-)
I would be willing to supplement #3 (PayPal coming after VIM release too),
so that will leave us with 1 & 2.
Personally I think #1 is temporary and will not be sustained (unless we
increase the level of releases :-) which leaves us with #2 -- what other
options are there to solve that ?
I don't mean to be negative, but I am honestly wondering now :-)
