Yep, I can't say I don't remember that you have been asking me to do
this for a long time already.  I think I can try to do this in the
nearest future -- right after I have several questions answered.

Firstly, as I have already said (and as you have already seen), the
majority of my commits to my nsmux repository are very ugly.
Everything is on a single branch, the commits are not grouped together
by functionality, etc.  I remember someone (either you or Thomas)
suggesting to throw away this dirty history and just start doing
normal source code management from what I have now.  Is this an
option, or should I try to tidy up the repository, or should I leave
things as they are?

Another serious issue is that my source code is full of weird stuff:
comment lines, improperly formatted comments, etc.  Should I try to
correct these?  If so, how should this go: a clean-up patch or a patch

And the last question is about the integration itself: how exactly do
I take my nsmux git repository and integrate it into the Hurd git
repository?  I have an idea how to do that, but since I've already
experienced situations when my ideas were totally astray, I'd like to
hear an expert opinion.

Well, IIRC, a branch *was* allocated for me in the Hurd CVS repository
last year.  I guess it shouldn't be a problem if I push the
nsmux-related changes to an equivalent branch in the Hurd git

Thomas, could you comment on this please?  Is this scenario feasible,
or should I really stay in the limits of a personal repository?
