This has always been a bit of a pain point for PyQt for me - what's
the rationale behind the repository not being publicly available? Is
it just for historical reasons, seeing it started somewhere in the
1990s I believe?

I'd really appreciate if PyQt was developed more openly, and had an
open repository, bugtracker, and some means to contribute.

I think this would make a big difference with people preferring PySide
(even with Qt4) over PyQt, and I'm sure there are many people who'd
appreciate helping out with PyQt. Hell, I'd even sign a CLA to do so
(as long as it was somewhat fair, of course).
