I can easily "pull" git trees. I do my own work in git, but usually
not in a way that would be useful for pushing upstream (see my trees
at git.kernel.org).

I *could* add my dream trees to those that are mirrored at kernel.org,
when things settle a bit. (Should I?)

But I'd really prefer to push my stuff using plain old patches in
emails.
