Hi Russel,

Anytime :)

Yes, kind of - I've only recently come across Git and the concept of DVCS 
but it was my intention to look at using a DVCS for this.

But DVCS "only" does source code - setting up a seperate branch only works 
if the community at large see the new branch, whereas the Commons group are 
considering marking Jelly as "No Longer Maintained" and moving the 
repository out of the main branch.

>From my point of view, I would only want to perform a public branch with the 
endorsment of the Commons team; IMHO it's important for new and existing 
users to see a future for the project, and for there to be a link from the 
official Commons website to the federated Jelly site.  The original 
downloads would remain for backward compatability, but the Commons site 
would clearly refer users onto the new site for upgrades and future
