Would Red Hat be happy hosting significant branches for other
companies? Would those other companies be happy depending on Red
Hat's CVS servers? (Maybe a reasonable answer here is "yes, but money
should change hands".) It might be nice if GDB were using a source
code management tool that didn't depend on having a single repository,
making it easier for people to maintain public branches elsewhere but
to still sync them with an official branch.
Anyways, I'd been planning for a while to write up some documentation
about creating branches; I'll try to do that sooner than later. I was
somewhat resistant to the idea myself, but in retrospect it was
unquestionably the right way to go for my project.
