Officially supported Xen Project repositories should only depend on
*upstreams* (Xen, Linux, ...). As we are talking about
git://xenbits.xen.org/pvdrivers.git here (as suggested by Aertem),
whatever is in that repo (owned by a subproject) should build and work
with vanilla Xen and Linux.
Is this pvdrivers.git going to be a descendent (e.g. a git clone) of
xen.git? Or is it a fresh repository which contains this new set of
drivers which do not have a home in xen.git?
pvdrivers.git shall not be a clone for xen.git. Indeed, it is a set of
drivers that, as you said, do not have a home in xen.git or kernel.git

Indeed. What I've got in mind is something like the following:

xenbits.org/[artem?]/xen-automotive.git  integration tree
I am assuming xen-automotive.git = xen.git with hacks (as a staging tree)
So wouldn't it be better the to have
xenbits/people/automotive/artem?/xen.git instead of a renamed tree?
Please can we keep subproject names out of the people namespace, it's
just confusing things (i.e. is that an official repo of some sort or
not?). /people/artem/xen.git is perfectly fine as a name for Artem's

/people/artem/xen.git is fine with me.
