the transparency requirements of NLnet's "Privacy and Enhanced Trust"
Grant need to be met, Vivek.  plus if someone else joins you and
wishes to help out, "waiting" actively prevents and prohibits them
from doing that, doesn't it?

please understand: the "quality" or "status" should in no way be
considered a deciding factor as to whether code should or should not
be made available.  it should *always* be made available.   if code is
not "pushed" within a few minutes of it being written and tested, this
should be considered a "red flag".

i've documented this on the HDL_workflow "development practices" page

if we can find other people to help, yes.  i'm doing two conference
presentations on LibreSOC for next week so it is likely to happen

are these auto-generated from a command? (if so they should not be
added, merely the build instructions updated).

it shouldn't - if it does, use "git push libresoc +{insert_branch}" to
fix it (note the "+")

you can either edit the .git/config file by hand (i do that all the
time) or use some commands (which i don't know) to achieve the same

[remote "libresoc"]
    url = gitolite3 at git.libre-riscv.org:/mesa
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*

yes you can have two URL lines under [remote "master"] _or_ if you
prefer you can have a separately-named remote... all in the same
.git/config file.
