OK, yes let's get a loud server from being next to your bed as soon as
possible (I don't even allow any computers permanently in my bedroom

But anyhow, we definitely need to come up with a good solution for
this. As I'm sure you guys are aware, I was never a big fan of us
hosting our own copy of WebKit. Though it has certainly served a good
purpose to allow the port to move where it is and for us to have a
decent browser, we really need to "rejoin" the WebKit community. Of
course that isn't always easy, and I'm not talking about just updating
our code with the latest WebKit but really the political stuff of
getting patches reviewed and all that. I suppose I'll be tackling that
now after doing a few more fairly easy Web+ fixes.

And sometime before or during that the Web+ code should be moved into
Haiku's repo and WebKit set up as a build dependency (maybe optionally
at first.)

The end result is that we eventually should not need a special SVN
server for this project. Though if you wanted to move the stuff from
your server to baron in the meantime that is fine. The projects above
will surely take some time.

But either way I appreciate you keeping your server going in the
meantime so I can more easily work on Web+.
