Of course you may!

Now, a couple of things have changed since I wrote that email, (and I should
probably write up a new one). Of relevance here is that we no longer encourage
personal repositories on git.freedesktop.org which is locked down, (requiring
someone like me to create/maintain the repositories), but instead on
people.freedesktop.org, (where anyone can create/maintain their own).

So, Brian, do you have a freedesktop.org account yet? If not, I'd be glad to
create one. All you need to do is to let us know your preferred username,
preferred email address and provide a gpg and an ssh key. More instructions are


(And you can just post things to this existing bug report---no need to make any
new report.)

Once you've got an account, (or tell me your username if you've got one
already), then you can create your own repository, or I can help you with it.

That's odd... I didn't get mailed your reply, apparently. 

Yes, I have an account, thanks: brianewins . You added me in bug 9476 :) My
keys are still attached over there.

So, should I be trying to follow something like 
and scp a repo to my account? I've been leaning on git-push too long, I guess,
time to learn a more distributed workflow - pointers appreciated.
