I second this idea.  I've been working on quite a few projects that work
in this way, with nothing but personal distributed repos, and it works
quite well.  Especially if Carl is going to continue to be benevolent
dictator (as I agree that he should).  Everyone who has patches can just
post them to their personal repos, making sure that they're well rebased
to Carl's master, and Carl can just pull from them as he sees fit.  It's
what git is designed to do, and it actually works really well.
