It would make it easier for me to contribute to the project.  One of the
reasons why I didn't volunteer to be a manager is that I remember one of
Uz's security requirements for write-access to the repository.

I don't have a static IP address.  But, it wouldn't be a problem on a 
public open-source developement site.

That's my opinion as a "rabid" developer of stuff in the project.
