This would be quite awesome. Then any of us could email patches to pg with git patch-format and he could use git am to integrate them into a test branch and if he liked the effect he could keep it. It would be very easy and slick.

I gave up (temporarily) on running Arc's web server under Windows, due to various problems (http://arclanguage.org/item?id=1531). My impression is that Windows support is "immature", based on the (system "some Unix command") scattered through the code.
I feel like if we have a canonical web repos for docstrings people will be able to find and use it. It works with Java's and Ruby's documentation. Most people probably don't care if the documentation is in the src or not. I don't know how to do it better than put it in the src though.
