Let's consider hosting MIT Scheme on another service.  Google Code's
project hosting service, for example, has full-time staff making sure
that it's up and backed up.  It also has a much cleaner UI.  And now
that we've already had one big accident with Git, we might find being
able to use Mercurial instead to be a blessing.

I know that MIT Scheme is now MIT/GNU Scheme, but is there anything
that says we have to be on Savannah?
