Hi Alex,

I pushed the patch and the 3.1.4 tag to
https://github.com/alex-hhh/emacs-soap-client.git so at least everything
is consistent again, except that the ELPA page doesn't point to
"Homepage".  I think that's a bug in GNU ELPA's generation scripts
though -- can you file a bug report for this?

As for repository organization, I'm fine with things as-is, I just have
to remember to push to GitHub anytime I push to emacs.git.

Right now the history is almost the same between emacs.git and
emacs-soap-client.git, and the files on the master branches are

Maybe in the future when elpa.git and emacs.git integration is better we
can use the elpa.git-separate-branch approach, and emacs.git will
automatically clone elpa.git as a submodule and everything will work in
core and for GNU ELPA updates.

In fact, soap-client is probably a good non-trivial package to
experiment with different Git organization approaches for such
core-and-GNU-ELPA packages.  There was a thread on emacs-devel about
this recently, in the context of adding BBDB to core.  I'm not working
on this Git integration effort directly right now, but I think some
people are from time to time.
