Why does it *have* to be "central?" I guess I don't see the benefit
(aside from, maybe to you personally), to having yet another site,
instead of joining with http://subversion.tigris.org/ - there are
dozens (maybe over a hundred, I'm not going to count them all) of
links on the Links page, mailing lists, etc. If you've got a good
site/resource that's a positive contribution to the community, get it
linked to by the official project site.

But if the server's down right now, no one can verify that history.
You said earlier that you were willing to put money into *advertising*
the effort, so why are you relying upon free and unreliable hosting
(put some of those ad dollars into good hosting!)?

Have you considered that you might have too much going on to take on
such an endeavor? I have a 7 month old, a full time job, and am
renovating a house; I wouldn't DREAM of trying to take on another
project right now. As it is I don't even have enough time to get baby
pictures distributed to family.
