I tried doing that on sf two weeks ago, and got rejected without 
Here's hoping that you will be more successful.

I'm not sure about your comments on CVS use. I would like to copy
the main kernel from into our repository, and then keep
it synced with that kernel. I have had a lot of success *exporting*
an existing CVS repository and *reimporting* it into my own.
This way you get the same effect as if you were working on a CVS branch.

Every month or so you can cvs export the linux kernel tree from
and cvs import it into our own. Then you have to "merge" the import 
into our
main line. Typically this is 5 minutes work, because we work on files 
the main
line never touches, so there are no conflicts. And it's not like the 
line linux kernel changes too fast.

But I don't really know how OE does things. I guess we can also try 
things and see what works best! If you get the sf account, certainly 
you will
call the shots.
