Note to self: read ALL threads before replying to an old one.

Kjartan, thanks for looking at cleaning things up. We need to have policies.
Enforcing this one seems retarded to core contributors like chx. Yes, people
CAN turn on externally hosted repositories. And, with that, one more use of
Drupal.org for collaboration dies.

As I said in a previous, older follow up, I opened up a documentation issue
for writing up CVS and Sandbox policy. See http://drupal.org/node/103700

I was looking again for other policy stuff like checking in external
libraries, etc. (e.g. TinyMCE) and couldn't find anything in the handbook. I
created a new policy page we can edit and merge in the
contributions/README.txt wording -- see http://drupal.org/node/103704

And +1 to comments on resources....who is this causing a problem for, other
than your mental model of what *should* be in our CVS?
