To fully connect the dots....

having a big source code repository for packaging type stuff is useful,
becuase it puts things "all in one place", that otherwise, would not have a
home. Otherwise, you'd have some in one persons' home directory, and some
in another person's home directory.

In contrast, for  web work on the www.opencsw.org main webserver,
All the "code" is already "all in one place": in the web server filesystem.

If you are one of the rare people who has chosen to actually do work on the
web coding, then you already know exactly where to look. and you can
already see everyone else's webcode too. its all quite "open" and organized
