No, I'm not trying to persuade the CCL team. I just suggest one possible
option which
(in my opinion) would make CCL more attractive, especially for new lispers
which are
potential CCL contributors/developers.

I agree partly, because the goal of any public proposal is a discussion,
first of all. Matthew has pointed
the problems of the migration from SVN to Git, and I just propose how to
solve these problems in my
opition. And only when we come to a consensus, then we can talk about who
will work on what.
