Forgive me if I'm preaching to the choir, but I'm strongly in favour
of such a switch for many reasons, but especially because it would
make it much easier for me to occasionally contribute.  github's
fork-and-submit-pull-request model is absolutely fantastic for this:


It also gives a great mechanism for peer code reviews for free.

That makes sense for sure ;-)
