I'll be covering that kind of territory a bit with my 'Samba + Github
== Freedom ??' talk.  Before SAAS came along, it is clear we (the Samba
Team) would have rejected a propriety VCS, and we still maintain the
master with our own hosting, but we decided we wanted to be 'easy to
work with' so now mirror on github.
