The patch in repoman just commits locally, it does not push. I suppose 
an operation or option could be added that treats that as if it were a 
single combined step, but I definitely do not want that as the only 
choice.

There's still a lot of unresolved questions about the precise repository 
setup and work flow, so simulating it isn't entirely possible yet.

One major problem with repoman+git is that a major feature of git is 
fast commits, but repoman is pretty slow (try a scan in 
x11-base/xorg-server). Anyone got a good idea for how to deal with this?
