Allow me to reveal part of my motivation for getting a public AROS repository available:

Ohloh is some sort of social networking site for open-source projects and contributors. It works by analysing the complete source history of as many open-source projects as it can get hold of, then building links between people and the different projects they've contributed to.

Its fascinating looking at the graphs that it generates (try the Contributors tab), particularly for a large project. The commit history graph is funky (as seen on my contributions to AROS and jabberd2).

I'm not really a fan of these kind of sites, but this one has me intrigued. I hope more projects I'm familiar with start to get mentions in here.
