The previous council wanted Infra to move it, because nobody with access
to the repogirl location was responsive, and there was NO work on the
repogirl tree between July and October. I couldn't even get an SVN dump
despite my requests, I had to extract each SVN rev manually to create
the git tree.

So folk want:
- on gentoo infra somewhere
- some non-devs need commit access
I'm not going to get involved with the politics of it this time, but I
will offer what I perceive to be a technical solution (if it causes a
flamewar, don't involve me, I really don't have time for more
My offer is to make it one of the Git repos on the overlays2 system
(Git-via-SSH). That fills both requirements listed above. It's identical
to what is underway for Uberlord's baselayout2 hosting.
