I was thinking about dump from the mailing list for all those patches
that are not picked up by one of the custodians  because  they  don't
clearly fall in one group or another.

Usually we have to do this anyway - for example just to know  if  the
patch  causes  compiler errors or warnings etc., so why not make this
available as repo.

Ideally there would be even feedback, and I'd feel more confident to
pull that stuff into the public tree every now and then.

As for the custodian trees, I think  I'm  going  to  do  the  merging
manually  for  some  time. I need to get a feeling first how good the
resonance between me and the respective custodian is ...

Best regards,
