Yeah, transferring just the wiki's does not make sense at all (first is
no needed, media wiki is better than trac wiki, second I feel the main
place for us still should be fp.o wiki). It's propose using it for
things for wiki is sort of inappropriate like tarbals with released
graphics (you know, those I use to build the backgrounds rpms), ticket
system for requesting tasks... Etc. one of the reasons why I posted this
here is to come to some conclusion what might be useful to have outside
the wiki and trac on fh.o provides it (i.e. official releases hosting
place, ticket system and maybe git/hg/whatever repository).

Yep. I think it would much more improve the interaction. We could even
(or at least I think so) set up track to automatically send e-mails to
art-list when new task is opened.

Dunno implications of either of them, but probably the first two
suggestions would work (I'd prefer the hot-linking).

You can look, e.g. what rel-eng use fedora hosted for as an example,
though we'd have slightly different usage.
