In case there had been any confusion here, yes, even with a
distributed source code system, we do need some centralization.  i.e.
Even if we do end up with several developers having their own git
branches, we would have to have an "official" tree used for the
releases and installers published on Biopython.org (and this official
tree could potentially be CVS, SVN or git based).  Bartek has just
written an email saying more or less the same thing.
