[tdwg-tag] LSID Sourceforge URL & LSID Best Practices

Couldn't we just move this code to Google Code?

If I recall, the problem is that the SourceForge site was set up as a  
Word Press blog (OMG), so when SourceForge changes their hosting  
things break.

We could probably get http://code.google.com/p/lsid/ (but whoever has  
the username and password for the original lsid SourceForge cite would  
need to set it up because Google won't create a project with the same  
name as one on SourceForge unless the SourceForge project owner agrees).

The other name would be /lsids, for which I assume someone in TDWG has  
the username/password combination?

I guess this also means moving the code from one Subversion repository  
to another one, but I guess that's straightforward.

Note that the code can still be accessed at http://sourceforge.net/projects/lsids/
