I brought up that point during the meeting, if you read the log you'll 
see it. =)

I don't hold this opinion, but people could bring up later resentment at 
Gentoo for not being able to get your way, etc.

I think we successfully directed any paranoia away from you and in the 
direction of whether wherever a git repo would get hosted is less 
trustable than Gentoo infra.

Could you tell us a bit about what you're thinking for where to host the 
repo?

Thanks,
Donnie
