I just want to have a remote backup of my local changes, as well as give everyone an early look of what I am currently working on, before I send any patches. I prefer having it hosted somewhere else, in case I do something stupid :).
As David said, there shouldn't be any issues with that.

I know. I would have preferred gitorious for this, but gitorious is shutting down so I couldn't think of an alternative.
