I could set up the contrib repository if you want. and I am happy to
have darcs running on my web site. The only thing is that the web front

This can all be done, I am just not really up to speed on what happens
on the backend for the current drupal cvs setup.
But because every darcs repository is a working system then we could

after every commit.
Not exactly sure if we could do this this contrib, but it could be done.
