Hi Shinnok,

> Aleksey, are you satisfied with the idea of maintaining main repo ownership and having to do all the merges and such? If so then I'll happily purge my repo and start doing pull requests for yours. I think I already said that I'll be doing that, but I'd like to make this crystal clear, now that we have a third contributor.

As of you're going to be the main mentor (right?) during gsoc, I think
it will be more convenient if you maintain the main repo.

Also to have one set of hashes should be better. To consider who own
the repo to rebase, we to estimate work in third party projects. At
the moment, my repo is more likely to be used by others. So to reinit
repo and to rebase may be useful. Though usefulness should not be very
big, so I'd look at this as at an exercise in git-fu.

I hope there will not be users that will be hit by changing the main
repo because johnny never supported workflow with doing just `git
pull` in your local repo.

So you clean out your wrong commits, pull appropriately (do you need a
pull request from me to accomplish that?), then Mathieu rebases his
work on your repo and pull into your repo. Ok?
