We've never been anywhere else.  CC Mode developement has always taken
place mainly in its own project at SourceForge.  Just that some years
ago, I started feeding bug fixes through to Emacs (and XEmacs)
immediately, rather than waiting for the next CC Mode release.

Absolutely not.  That would risk having incoherent code automatically
transferred to Emacs.  Anyhow, stand alone CC Mode and that in Emacs
have drifted apart to the extent that any such synching would usually
need manual effort (as Óscar will likely find out).  Reducing those
differences is on my todo list.
