True.  I mostly wanted to reassure them that this would not be a huge
repo containing only binary files.  So I guess it’s OK to save audio
tracks as long as it doesn’t grow too much.

If/when it happens to grow quickly than expected, we’ll ask the Savannah
folks whether it’s still fine with them.

I’d say we can think about that later if it becomes a problem.

Laura, could you please upload the OpenPGP key that you will be using to
sign commits to <>, and then reply
to this message signed with that same key?  (If you need help setting
that up, we can discuss it off-list.)

Please read the ‘HACKING’ file as well.  Technically you’ll have access
to all the Guix repositories, but for now I’d prefer you to restrict
pushes to the video repo (once it has been created, that is :-)).  That
said, you’re of course welcome to contribute to the other repos, but
please email guix-devel or guix-patches beforehand.
