Well, much to my surprise, my Git account was approved in short order.

So now the question is which pieces belong where? 

Gtk-quartz-engine already has a repo, so that's obvious. The GtkOSXApplication half of ige-mac-integration can go in gtk+/gtk, and its Python bindings to PyGtk if the devs over there are willing.

But what about the build stuff and the proxy packages for docbook and gtk-doc-utils? Is there a logical home for them, should they have a new project on Gnome, or should they stay on SourceForge?
