Hi Mike,

That's a much bigger shift, and will probably take a long time
to realize.  On the other hand, providing a service like this is easy,
and might help nay-sayers realize the value.  In the mean time,
people who find it useful get the benefit right away.

IMHO, they're not as useful.

If Fedora doesn't want to do this, I can probably set up
something independent and provide public git:// access.
