I think it's just the same - contributing to a CVS server or submitting
links to, although the latter is sure easier for people with
less programming experience.
And if a source management system, it might be most convenient to take an
existing one, like sourceforge.

As i understood it, there is a possibility to outsource the task of checking
the submissions to, so that the work load is distributed on
more than just jfm3 and response times can be shorter.
I personally like the system.
