This looks good to me but we would usually mirror the git tree on
xenbits to avoid consuming 3rd party resources.

When we informally spoke about it I had the impression we had to prefer using their git repo. However I'm fine with mirroring their git repo, how can I find instructions on how to set it up?

Do we want to track upstream's master branch, which would require us to
have a staging->tested push gateway, or have a particular tag which we
update in order to upgrade? In the latter case ideally it would be a
meaningful tag (e.g. a stable release) but if none such exist (which
appears to be the case) then we could just pick some reasonable point in
the development history.

I've personally just tested the current master branch, not sure if there is any instability we should worry about, so the current snapshot could be a good starting point. There doesn't seem to be any stable branch, however, thus we should just go with master or consider working snapshot from it.

How do you prefer to proceed then?
