Which is also something that having a branch with the patches is helpful 
for - it allows glibc people to look over them and point out coding 
standards issues to be addressed globally by people less familiar with the 
conventions used in glibc.  (Though when those issues are addressed the 
fixes should be integrated into each patch as part of a rebase, rather 
than simply adding another patch to the branch that fixes coding standards 
issues with the previous patches.)

(A branch close to current master also provides a basis for anyone working 
on build-many-glibcs.py support for Hurd, if you don't already have such 
support among your glibc patches.)
