I'll take the full Git hit just as soon as that professorship comes 
through and I no longer have to waste time on things that make money. :)

Actually, last week I reluctantly dumped a bunch of 
somewhat-useful-but-not-necessarily-polished-or-finished stuff into 
PLaneT packages.

One example of less-finished is 
"http://www.neilvandyke.org/racket-uri/", but, now that it's been 
revived from 2004, it's on a path to being what I want for representing 
and manipulating URI, for both convenient scripting use and 
high-performance server use.

I've been releasing packages as LGPL, so that people can use them, and 
so that they can be forked it I get hit by a bus.  But I'd strongly 
prefer that people not fork any of the stuff I've released unless I've 
declared it obsolete.  (If I don't get alienated by forking, I'll be 
more likely to release my end-all-be-all time library sooner.)  If I do 
get hit by a bus, however, I will have fewer objections to forking.
