The way we currently have things (the cvs repository, the wiki, the website and bugzilla) set up makes it inherently difficult for us to allow external contributors to work on the Cyrus project.

Would it make any sense to use SourceForge/Berlios/Github/etc so we can off-load some of the system administration work of maintaining a stand-alone host?
