Yes, that's a plan.  Can you set it up in a way that we can push
directly to, similar to how Nathan does it for pcp?  Nathan would also
like to push to the xfs-cmds tree for the debian packaging, btw.

One thing we were discussing is if it's really a good idea to have all
these together.  acl and attr aren't really related to XFS, and it might
be a good idea to just have them maintained directly by Andreas.
xfsprogs is I think mostly by terrain these days with Barry gone,
xfstests is something I'd voluntter Eric for as he's been doing good
work on it.  xfsdump still has a maintainer with Bill Kendall, and dmapi
would probably be best left to the DMF group at SGI.  xfsmisc might be
better off as a scripts/ directory inside xfsprogs.
