This probably means that SqueakSource - at least the MC part - needs to be

I'd be for it. For the record, I think the only contibution I have here is I
own the DNS and A records for
I'd be happy to either enter additional A records to other squeak sources
should the P2P networking be baked into SqueakSource.
Also, I also run my own SqueakSource, mostly because I keep my code backed
up and not primarily because kilana.unibe.ch <http://kilana.unibe.ch> or my
dang proxy keeps going on the fritz. I believe the public SqueakSource web
site says you are on your own to ensure you have backups, so putting all my
eggs in one basket doesn't sound too appealing to me. Having multiple
replicas of SqueakSource could alleviate that concern a bit if I understood
the architecture (i.e. some replication technologies have been know to
correctly replicate mass deletions too).
If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.
