I don't think project-specific branches in the main repositories are a 
good idea. I think the private repositories we used for example during 
the make preinstall elimination are better for work in progress stuff.

For the RTEMS sources we can use the master. For other parts, e.g. 
things that may go into rtems-tools or whatever, which are newly 
developed I think it is beneficial if some project internal review 
happens first before it is presented to the overall RTEMS community. 
Everyone interested should still have the opportunity to look at it.

Yes, this is a valid issue. Google finds all sorts of RTEMS repositories 
for example.
