Subversion hosting for Linux Kernel

Hello,

I'm getting a little annoyed at the current state of being able to
access Linux kernel source and would like to do something about it.

I have, locally, a Subversion tree containing full mergeable history
of several releases and a few branches of the Linux kernel source.

I would like to have a single place where a full history is available.
It would start "small", focusing on just 2.4.x and 2.5.x, and then add
on some of the major branches such as ac and linuxppc.

Having this in Subversion will make it a *lot* easier for people to
maintain their own local kernel trees without using Bitkeeper, thanks
to Subversion's excellent ability to run svn merge across
repositories. I also see this is a great opportunity to increase the
awareness of Subversion. If we provide a solid service that works
well, I can also see a potential to displace Bitkeeper in the future.

I have the technical know-how and the will to do this. However, I do
not have the disk space on a public server nor the bandwidth that this
will require.

Is anybody here interested in providing the disk space and bandwidth
for such a project? Is there any other place I should be looking?

Thanks,
John Goerzen
