There's no reason to even offer a CVS repository but convenience. :-)  
If the code is GPL, and there is permission granted by the project's  
maintainers, and the contrib module maintainers are the ones  
maintaining it, isn't it acceptable for the sake of user experience?

The GPL requirement makes perfect sense. But it's not like anyone is  
asking the CVS repository admins to make sure that the TinyMCE  
libraries are up to date, neh?
