Yes, I have write access to that repository, too, but I intentionally
held off from updating it out of a sense of nervousness. I figured if I
screwed up anything too badly, people who were clued-in enough to switch
to pulling from my repository would be clued-in enough to rebase across
any too-horrible mistake I made. ;)
I think if we do this again, I will make the same split you do (git/git
for integration branches, peff/git as a mirror of my private repo).

Any fool can merge topics to master. The real test will be how many
regressions people report in the next two weeks. :)
By the way, I did not touch 'maint' at all while you were gone. I don't
know what your usual method is for keeping track of maint-worthy topics
after they have gone to master. The usual "what's cooking" workflow
keeps track of things going to master, but no more; I'd guess you
probably just merge to maint when you delete them from last cycle's
"graduated to master" list.
I just let them stew in master for a bit longer, and we can easily find
and merge them with "git branch --no-merged maint | grep maint".
