Well, I'm personally no fan of the git route as it causes us to have
less review on the list imho (too easy also for me to just bounce a
patch to paulus to shove in his git tree :) though that's what I've been
doing for the last few days at least. But if you prefer that way, yes,
it's certainly possible.
