Other issues are that Infra doesn't always get on things right away so a
JIRA import file I submit may take a week before someone actually tries it
and finds it doesn't work, and that Apache (and Adobe) didn't have a good
way to transfer multi-GB files.  More disk space on the Apache private
folder server or an FTP dropbox would be helpful.

There is also a question of scalability.  Having everyone in one SVN
repository really puts a strain when donating tons of files because the SVN
import for a project has to take down SVN for others.  And of course, the
question of disk space on the server.  Similar for JIRA instances.
