I can check the list of names against mine. It's weird that you had to
manually add some names to it.

According to the definition of a "clean repository", I have some
troubles understanding all the issues. I would assume that many GSOC
projects would copy the core, do something in their branch and leave
it at that. Do we need to manually identify all these cases and create
a branch of the main tree with those changes?

How do you treat the cases when developers copy part of the code
(either ports or core code) to their personal tree and then merge it
back to the main tree?

How many repositories would you make out of contrib?

(Subversion is simply a slightly different philosophy and I never
thought about the many problems arising from trying to "switch the
philosophy" when you end up with a completely different set of
repositories as in the initial tree.)
