I agree, I don't think there's any problem with making my GitHub repo
the "upstream" repository (as opposed to hosting something elsewhere).
The new SourceForge git support is interesting, but GitHub definitely
has made a lot of nice stuff and in short order.

The only thing I found was this:

I don't intend on pinging SourceForge Support for at least a couple
weeks (not sure what a good wait time is).

I updated the _SiteTemplate.tmpl in www/ and pushed it to the gh-pages
branch which is responsible for this content: (awesome Gimp skill on the logo huh? :))
(I also updated the credits.html to include recent patch contributors)

I've lost motivation for the night to figure out how to generate a new
set of docs for all the TeX files that are responsible for the Cheetah
docs, not knowing TeX has something to do with that I presume. I'd
welcome any help on that from you guys :)

I feel like we should be coming up with an agenda, or at least some
semblance of a list of bugs that need resolving, etc; projects with
goals and TODOs tend to do well. The only two things on my list are
updated/more tests and starting some speed optimizations (we spend some
amount of time filling templates). Other things like Py3k come to mind,
but is Python 3000 even necessary at this point?

Ideally I'd like to get a point release per-month if possible (if there
are changes there to be released).
