I'm with you Chuck. I wasn't aware exactly what your resources were, so I thought I was jesting. One thing I've noticed about xfce's cvs is that everytime I upgrade, it seems to upload for an unusually long time before starting the download. I say unusual because other projects (even ones hosted on SF) that I check out from cvs like gaim, plib, FlightGear, SimGear, and dillo do not do this. 
It would make sense IMO to host the cvs at the "same place" as the website and the mailing list, but I'm no developer, just a vocal end user who catches the occasional weird bug.
