Makes sense.

Obviously anybody that have the resources can setup a CVS
server and give accounts to others.

So why discuss it at all. Do it yourself or if you
lack the resources try to convice somebody that do
to host it for you. If people think it is a good idea they
will use it and if they want write access they will ask
you for an CVS account. If not, well, I think you will
notice the lack of intrest... :-)

In short:
Action speaks louder than words.

BTW, Wine already have a SourceForge account
(registered by Dimitrie it seems).

Why not use it? SourceForge provides CVS access IIRC.
