yeah 'someone' is a good description. I accidentally took it over when
it looked stale. Now I have a cron job to upload the pu branch there
each night. (Which is one of the downsides of that service: Git is so
large measured by lines of code, such that we're allowed only one scan
per day. I wonder if that could be circumvented by each contributor having
its own fork, but let's not go that way)
