  One of the most common problems which led to the discussion whether
we should add ACL (Access Control Lists) to the CVs base is that there
have been case of people who were granted access to do a specific
action on the code base and who extended that priviledge and made
unappropriate changes to the code.

  The current view point was that we should try to find and fix the
few problems we had with the current state of the servers. This doesn't
prevent looking for different hosting or hardware solutions but this
was considered less urgent (if needed at all.)

  My personal opinion on this last point is that the bandwidth and hardware
capacity of the servers is just fine for their current use, there is just a 
need to fixe a couple of problems (and Owen promised to look at what could
be done to fix the couple of weak points.).
