I am aware that I have not done anything about this. Which I suppose  
is part of the problem we're trying to solve. I will try and set some  
time aside to get this done in the next few days.

My apologies.

I think we're going to have to go for an SVN repository. Seems to be  
the one which will get most developers working on the project.
