I agree.
Having a central repository is important to the doc project. We should
also have one for other Computerbank scripts, web sites, etc. 

If we close down sf.net, then we should arrange a repository on another
permanent conection machine with accounts for everyone involved.

It has obviously not been used too much so far, but it is an important
tool for the doc developers.
