Obviously I agree. and for the record I am not much a developer either 
though I consider myself a fair admin. :-)

So far as resources go I am pretty capable... I have 4 machines in a
colo that has 5xT1's worth of broadband 1 hop off of Qwest's backbone.  
The ISP in question is quite happy to host me as I am their 3rd tier
tech support... they call me when it's really, really broken and I send
them no bill in return.

The machine that hosts xfce's web page has no cvs on it now but it would 
be a simple matter to make it so.
