We could try distributed. But we need a much more precise plan.

- how not to double the work?
- we still need an official tree. Who would maintain it?
- how do you validate a commit?

My proposition would be:
- Everyone has a tree. We pull from each other. We decide when/what to  
push to the official vlc.git. An official tree *might* emerge.

This is much more complicated IMO, and I have no idea if this would  
work as seemlessly as it does today. But the idea seems nice as it is
