I think that's great for the whole Squeak VM not just Cog.  I'm not doing
this now because I think Cog should live with the rest of the Squeak VM.
 Let's start a separate discussion on whether we should move
http://squeakvm.org/svn/squeak to github, or at least to git with a home on
machines we control..

Agreed.  Git and/or Mercurial is much better than svn.
