Hey guys, while I didn't catch that you were considering moving the mongrel project off rubyforge onto devjavu, and I tend to stay out of it, I'm gonna ask that you not move svn and bug tracking off rubyforge.

Being an open source project means that it's important to host it on a system that isn't owned by a for-profit corporation, doesn't require paying money to maintain, and allows others to snag the code should anyone on the project try to hijack it.  Rubyforge allows this since it's run by Ruby Central, allows access to anyone for anything, and should any one person try to hijack I can ask Rich and friends to take the keys back.

Not that I think you guys would do that, but stranger things have happened in open source.

So I'm asking to not move the hosting, and instead just start up a wiki or FAQ system of some sort somewhere else and reference from the main site.  Remember, this isn't your project or mine, it's the community's.

Otherwise, rock on, you're all kicking serious ass.
