I've set up a shared git repository for EMMS.  Let's use git instead of
Darcs for developing EMMS from now on.  Instructions are at
<http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/EMMSDevelopment>.  Once I figure
out how to update the EMMS website, I'll propagate the user-specific
info over there.

A few quick tips:

 - If you've pulled from the git repo I set up about a month ago, remove
   that and replace it with this repo instead.  Or do "git pull
   --rebase", because I've fixed some of the authorship info in old
   commits.  It's now just a mirror of the sv.gnu.org repo.

 - Joining the emms project on Savannah (http://sv.gnu.org/p/emms) is
   required if you want to be able to commit to the shared git repo.

 - Alternatively, you can just send in patches or host your own git
   repo, much like we were doing with Darcs.  Instructions for emailing
   patches are included on the EMMSDevelopment page.  The benefit to
   using the shared repo is that you don't have to wait on me in order
   to get your changes into EMMS :^) .

 - Sending patches is really easy if you use DVC (I keep a git repo of
   it at git://git.hcoop.net/git/mwolson/emacs/dvc.git).  Just hit `C-x
   v l' when the current directory is a checkout of the emms repo to
   view the logs, and then hit "A" (for "A"nnounce) to send a patch.
   Customize xgit-mail-notification-destination to have the To: field
   filled out for you.

 - Commit email will be automatically sent to address@hidden about
   15 minutes after a change is checked into the shared git repo.  One
   message has already arrived.
