Well don't forget a lot of this work is rather generic as well. As arm
SoCs seem to be gaining OpenGLES accellerators built in. Having a
generic framework to support them the same as x86 has would be good. And
Ill bet it will help OM going forward in the future.

As for git hosting I'm sure we can organise that within OM. I have the
resources to host it myself but better to get OM to do it :-)
