There was some concern expressed privately that they might not like the
direction we take things, and so this gesture is an olive branch to the
current maintainers. They have a lot at stake, and although activity has
been low, Tidy is still near and dear to their hearts. If we can get by
without the SF repository, so much the better.

W3C has a repository on github. The current HTACG repository was actually
transferred from there, and it currently redirects to our repository:


My understanding is that community groups such as our can request to move
to the w3c/ repository. We haven't done such as yet but that certainly
would in line with our goals.

As for standard hosting, the W3C provides a Wordpress-based portal for the
group: http://www.w3.org/community/htacg/ -- However it's very basic and
we've not done much with it yet.
