There's no difference. It started out at mchehab/new_build.git, then got moved
to media_build.git, but there's a symlink in place to keep from breaking things
for people who originally checked it out at the old location.

The move essentially promoted it from "something Mauro's tinkering with" to
"something generally useful for a wider audience". And its also being worked on
by more people than just Mauro now (myself included).
