That's very good news.

Access granded on github, sourceforge and freecode.

Personaly I would prefer a documentation site, like a wiki, where other
people can join and contribute.

I suggest to simplify things regarding for example mailing lists. Github
has notifications that work pretty much like a mailing list (you subscribe
to a repo for getting notifications, you receive emails for all issues, you
can respond via email but at the same the threads are organized in issues
that can be correlated to commits and releases and are available through
the web.

Phil, I let all these decisions to you.
Decide how you want to organize it and let us know.
