It's a point of failure, and one I'd like to neutralise. It won't be
anything like wgo and dgo at the moment... They're positively cretinous.

No one is actively hacking on something that would be committed to CVS.
We're researching and answering some basic questions about implementation at
the moment.

When we have a reasonable set of guidelines for implementation, perhaps
you'd like to pitch in.

We'll be branching off gnomeweb-wml for the time being, and there's some
discussion about merging it and gnomeweb. I doubt there'll be any reason to
commit stuff to CVS at this point, other than having status things, mockups,
etc. listed on our pages on d.g.o.

When we start on the real codebase, we'll undoubtedly have a live checkout

Stuff is happening - it may not be "code in CVS right now", but building a
site of this magnitude requires some careful thought about implementation
and construction, especially when you have a number of crucial requirements
such as i18n, etc.

Be excited, but be prepared to do the hard yards first.
