Please don't try to jump the gun on the process here:  you should be
thinking of the existing Github branches as merely "scratchpads" for the
sprint work, which should be merged into the canonical repository when
they are ready.  It is not appropriate for a small subset of the
community to preempt this kind of choid: "ask forgiveness rather than
permission" is *not* going to fly here, and trying to push harder only
irritates folks you might otherwise persuade.
