As far as where the code is hosted I’m good one way or the other.
Will wait a couple days for objections and create openbmc/phosphor-ipmi-ethstats.

It might be good to have a conversation around how we handle the OpenBMC OEN
though.  Putting things there would seem to have lasting impact for everyone
using OpenBMC and we don’t have any process in place for that.
