I think this would be a good idea so that people helping don't need to
handle two different SCMs. I have adapted the Wiki page
http://wiki.debian.org/PkgNagios to reflect the current state of

Too bad that the Alioth SCM page points to an empty repository. If
that page cannot be disabled entirely, it would probably be good to
have a repository there containing a file which points people to the
correct addresses.

For example, if I were interested to look into the current state of
the nagios-plugins package, I wouldn't know where to look.

But all of this doesn't matter to me too much as I'm currently leaving
