I agree.  We have too many meetings already. This stuff can surely be 
dealt by email?

First, let's have a look at git.linaro.org/linaro/linux-linaro.git.  I 
think that "linaro" is getting a bit overused here.

Having a top level "linaro" directory is rather redundant IMHO.  After 
all this is the Linaro Git server.

What I'd propose here is:

	git.linaro.org/kernel/linux-linaro-next.git

	git.linaro.org/kernel/linux-linaro-2.6.35.git

	git.linaro.org/boot/u-boot-next.git

	git.linaro.org/boot/efi-whatever.git

Remains to find a good name for John's kernel repositories.
