Dear all,
I'm not fully disagree with local modification to gforge, you see, system
administrators do not really like something static and un-update-able
content on filesystem, in this case changing source might cause broken
upgrades as well,but as i have always said, if community is seriously in
need of some changes, site-admin team will accept changes happily :) 

in my point of view, there are few steps to make gforge a better place
to live while total tree is still upgrade-able, for example Aapo
Rantalainen asked me if they could have some sort of wiki, well, it would
be very easy to setup something simple/useful without database back-end.
(ideally dokuwiki) has Great potentials, we, site-admin team are in
need of your points and suggestion. 

Also, once again i have to say that will be more
valuable service with official openmoko projects there.
