I would just like to quibble with your pathnames.  I think that the
subproject should have its own subdirectory, which should contain all
of its repos.

Rather, we should have:


(FSVO "automotive"; I currently have no opinion about the project

Cf xenbits.xen.org/xenclient/, xenbits.xen.org/kemari/,
xenbits.xen.org/xcp/, xenbits.xen.org/xenrt-citrix/ ...

NB these are mostly git url fragments, not http url fragments.  So eg
"xenbits.xen.org/xenrt-citrix/" contains "xenrt.git" which is
accessible via
  git clone git://xenbits.xen.org/xenrt-citrix/xenrt.git
(and also via the gitweb index etc.)

If it is helpful there is no technical reason why it would be
difficult to provide a subproject with a webtree on xenbits that would
be accessible via http://xenbits.xen.org/subproject/.  But we don't
want xenbits to be used for general-purpose web hosting.

AIUI this particular subproject doesn't have a requirement at this
stage for a separate web hosting setup.

I agree with Ian Campbell that we do not want subproject names in
people/.  That is strictly for human beings, and contains only
"unofficial" repos.
