Yes, and darcs repos can also be hosted on patch-tag.com.
community.haskell.org requires you to wait for a volunteer to review
every new project request. Although, you don't need to make a
project request if you only want a 1-developer repository. And by the
way, it only hosts Haskell-related projects, not arbitrary darcs

patch-tag.com doesn't have those constraints.
