Yes, I was thinking mostly about docs, but you raise another relevant 
point. The bf-scripts project should have corrected that with commit 
rights, but we were not able to sustain it back then.

Hopefully this new project will attract enough interest and from what 
mindrones, ideasman and Kent have written, svn access for script authors 
and trackers to post updates should be good ways to keep track of things.

But the plot thickens :). This also reminds us that to try to avoid 
issues with updates, we need clear guidelines about how to manage script 
updates when opinions differ.
