Certainly. If we have a better way to do a developer source repository
we need to do it, Source Forge has been a huge hindrance with it's
outages and slow response times. We will need to mirror to it or
another public site but I doubt we would let SF slow us down again if we
had funding.

I'm not sure that is the question here. I don't think anyone has said
that volunteers are not welcome. The question I see is would a
successful OVC will have development staff? I believe that the answer
should, and will be yes.

We are a group that produces open voting software, not just office
expenses :)
