I'm sure you very busy, but do you think the review process will take much longer? If there is no hope here, I was going to give GitLab a try.

Hi, thanks for the response. The project is really meant to be a experimental test bed for my various picoLisp codes and concept implementations. What I originally uploaded what just a few practice questions, but in the three weeks I've been waiting for approval, repository has already grown to over 400 lines of code. E.g., I recently implement a macro which converts a tc recursion into a loop, which is quite significant because picoLisp does not have TCO built in. Also, a few days ago I added additional commands to the picoLisp emacs mode to make it easier to reload code into the inferior lisp buffer. I'm planning further experimentation such as implementing various Haskell like functionality (e.g., monadic data structures) in PicoLisp. In addition, I am currently doing experiments with embedded picoLisp development on a Atheros SoC, and will be uploading all that code into a folder on the repo.

As you can see there, no particular thing I am working in is really large enough yet for a completely separate project, but nevertheless I want all this code out where people can easily get it and browse it, available under free software license. If anything does grow large enough for its own project, then I will request another Savannah project and fork out that code.

This looks like answers to an exercise book; you even don't tell the real tasks your package will be solving.

Such files could be hosted on a single web page. What about waiting until it grows enough to make sure that it shall be a real package?
