- it's open in the sense that if you have access to the hosting system
  you can read the source

- its organization is intrinsic

- the code is not part of a project manageable by a team, the way that
  the projects that we package are

- there is no documentation for this or other infrastructure of the
  OpenCSW project

Is there opportunity to change this situation? I think that an answer
would give also a measure of the OpenCSW politics.
