It I don't know if the request is reasonable in terms of disk space and 
burdening denx.de with administrative work, but it would be nice if the 
primary maintainers had their official feeder repositories on the 
denx.de site.  It is _very_ useful to have the feeder git repositories 
in one place for easy reference, and that way the repositories would 
tend to be more stable and available.

As always, thank you very much for your efforts in the past and your 
thoughtful work to always improve both u-boot and the development 

Best regards,
