As per my other, longer email: for me, the current SVN/branch 
development model is hugely offputting for occasional contributions, and 
I suspect for people who want to submit 10-100 line changes.

For the love of god, pick a DVCS so that contributors can develop in 
local branches, and pick a DVCS with a good central "pull request" and 
patch review system/engine/site/app/whatever.

I like github and loathe Launchpad personally but really - pick 
anything. Just not SVN. And not Trac.
