This is reasonable.

The problem with that, which is one of the reasons a different server
was suggested (I believe), is that it isn't "self service", from the
point of view of the developer of each contrib -- everything blocks on
Jesse (or whomever has write access to the appropriate directory on
fsck.com) getting the time to put it up there.  With a CVS repository,
developers can commit on their own schedule; only a Release Technician
can make a release, so there can still be some control by an admin over
what gets officially "blessed" as part of the contribs.
