This is essentially just about storing issues and wiki in a DVCS, right?
There have been several attempts at this, most of which seem dead. I
doubt that it's hard to do from a technical standpoint, but there are
reasons issue tracking etc is often centralised:
- it's a place for discussion, which is hard to follow if not everyone
gets the same thing at the same time => this is solved by some kind
of always-on updater over a P2P network => I'd consider this more
akin to blockchain than bittorrent, but either way
- issues sometimes need to have a limited audience => this isn't
actually that hard to do, probably
- you don't necessarily want to pull down a => this can be solved by
something on the project home page
A very interesting thought, in any case.
