Let's see what needs to be done to move it to gnome.org:
1. It is possible for a committer to create new git.gnome.org
repositories automatically without any 3rd party (human) involvement.
[Btw, we should create separate repositories for gtkglext, gtkglextmm,
etc. due to the way the code and history are organized.]
2. There is a bugzilla.gnome.org component for GtkGLExt already.
3. There is this mailing list.
What remains are accounts to commit to the repository. I have one. Do
you and Braden have accounts too?
Ralf: If you're still waiting for an account, we'll create this
repository and I'll see to it that you get your account after that.
You can not only commit to GtkGLExt, but any of the hundred odd GNOME
projects after that (assuming your patches are reviewed and accepted by
maintainers of that project, of course :).
Until you get the account, you can have GtkGLExt patches from you
committed by any gnome.org committer (git separates the concept of
author and committer, so the patches are committed in your name to the
GtkGLExt is a GTK+ related project which is considered for inclusion
into GTK+ someday (Project Ridley or not). It belongs at gnome.org.
You have several more GNOME developers looking at it, and readily able
to commit to it.
