I really like VCS for developing bigger projects, but my project hosted
on mozdev isn't that big, so I don't really need VCS. I would really
appreciate if there would be a FTP-like service. Maybe there could be a
web-page where I can upload the latest version, and a online html-editor
(source-code-based, not wysiwyg) where I can quick-edit minor changes on
the pages. That would be the things I miss on mozdev which would make it
really easier for newcomers on mozdev, like Eric said.
