I'll leave that between you and David, and possibly other people who
are interested in advancing "git subtree" who may volunteer.

I'd imagine for the first few rounds of patchsets I'll be picky
about styles and design, but once whoever eventually becomes the
volunteer subarea maintainer (perhaps you) demonsrates that s/he has
good enough motivation and taste to keep the codebase clean and user
experience consistent, I'd delegate more and more decision what to
include and reject to that subarea maintainer, just like any
material in the contrib/ area.
