For those who do not immediately figure it out:
On the right side is a button "Clone repository".

We could rotate the job. ;)
Whoever has the time is assigned to do it for a month and then it is passed to 
the next in the active-chain.

Is someone used to the Signed-Off-By system and knows how it works? Maybe we 
could use that to assist QA a bit. Or get users to mark problematic 

(What I currently think about is, when Joe User experiences unexpected crashes 
in devurandom's repository, he marks it with a comment. Far from ideal and 
just a sketchup, but you get the idea.)

What Gerard and I thought about was an even simpler system though:
Let people dynamically decide where to fetch from.
If they find my repository to be most stable and up-to-date (I doubt it...), 
they will fetch from me. If they think Per's is better, they will use his.
For releases we will appoint a release maintainer, who will receive merge 
requests and prepare an official version.
So while things based on master are pretty loose, you have one 
person/repository responsible for any release branch. That's exactly one place 
to send people to.
I'd like to see your comments.
