Moving forward, separate repo's make a lot more sense? The code is still version 
'g' this year, while the data has moved on. No need to have to 'release' new 
code copies with every data update.

Of cause if the releases are dropped altogether, and only the repo is supported, 
then a single point makes sense, but personally I'd prefer to see 'packaged' 
data releases since git is not the best of bases for DVCS and hopefully a much 
more generic base will develop ... getting git on a windows machine still needs 
to be made a bit more reliable!
