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.
