The first question you need to settle is whether you need to keep the
change comments for your branch.  If not, the procedure is very simple:

1. New repo is put up.

2. You pull it.

3. You start a new branch.

4. You rm -fr and copy in your version.

5. You commit and push it, creating a new branch in the master repo.

If you need to keep the change comments, Andreas has a more complicated 
procedure in mind which I will help him set up.
