Cool! As you guessed my vote is for git and I'd also love to see it on
Alioth. If that happens we could merge the Debian packaging into the
same repository using the branch layout that is described in the README
on alioth.

Right. The fact I'm worried by is 'pygame'. It causes a lot of
dependencies and makes it a PITA to install and maintain it under
windows (not that this work could be anything else than a PITA ;-).

IIRC pyglet would make this much easier. So the real question is: Does
PyEPL still depend on pygame (and it sounds like that) and do you still
plan to move to pyglet and in what timeframe?

If you want me to prepare a repository on Alioth just drop me a note. Of
course you can run the 'add_project' script yourself. Maybe we should
really chat before you eventually move pyepl to alioth, so we can agree
on a branch layout (hopefully the one we are already using).
