If you want to setup a source code repository, you should consider where you can have bug report, mailing list
and source repository (git, darcs, hg, svn and cvs).

You should take a look at

Where you already have a basic implementation for ls, find, touch, rm,
cp, du, cmp... These are pure OCaml functions, that you can call directly
from OCaml (not external call).
