[zeromq-dev] decentralize git with pub/sub

There is now a growing discussion about decentralizing git (and Github
following Trump trade sanctions against devs and businesses in Iran,
Cuba, Syria, Sudan, North Korea, Crimea and al).

The original way to do Git development was through mailing-lists,
where PRs could be sent and discussed. It basically follows the pubsub
tolopogy. I am wondering how zeromq could be used in such context.

If you have ideas, feel free to post them here.

There has been discussions in the past to switch Zeromq to Gitlab.com,
which unfortnately seems to be also bound by US law.

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
