Here's another example. The Clojure programming language is hosted on
GitHub as an organization.


I'd like to merge network-bytestring into network, but since network
is hosted in darcs that would mean having to switch to darcs in
development flow which I prefer not to.

I could just move network to GitHub, but I'd feel a bit bad about
doing that since it's a community maintained library. If we had a
Haskell organization on GitHub the package wouldn't have to be hosted
under my name and other people could have commit access as well.

P.S. I saw that text recently (with the latest release) moved off
code.haskell.org to GitHub/BitBucket.
