The main reason for wanting a push as well is to make the experience as close to previous repoman usage as possible. Changing from "repoman commit" to "repoman commit; git push" admittedly isn't much of a change, but it seems odd to expose the scm step to devs who previously could have got away with only using repoman. I'm all for a option to allow for manual pushing. However, I'd also try to keep the normal repoman commands working as similarly to the current system as possible. Just from overlay usage I'm sure there'll be cases of fixes getting committed but not pushed. What do people think? Since we're making the change, should we get devs into good habits with distributed SCM and know how it all works? Would it be better to push by default to maintain consistency with old versions?
