It was my initial intention to have an external repository not covered
by the same CLA conventions as the toolkit. I was under the same
impression as Tom, that we only require that for actual delivered
product, but have been wrong before. It just turns out that, thus far,
no one with commit privs to dojoc doesn't have a CLA, so it's not been
an issue, yet.
DojoCampus has recently been donated a dedicated machine in the U.S., so
perhaps we can setup the repository there. All the explorer code in is
dojoc/, and the intention was to allow people to write small examples of
common things without having to go through the "trouble" of
printing/signing/faxing for a trivial contribution.
I understand the importance of the CLA, but strongly desire a place
where people can simply say "look what I did", and others can
collaborate. Alex made it clear svn:dojoc is not the place for that.
