But if you do it that way, why not do it for the actual repo 
organisation too?  The main "benefit" to the put-everything-in-the-root 
approach is that nothing looks more special than anything else.

But... let's face it.  Some things *are* more special than others.  Some 
things *are* essential to Xfce, and some things aren't.

And regardless... to the world at large, it doesn't matter.  Many 
(most?) people won't even look at git.xfce.org.  If that's the case, 
then it just boils down to what's easier to manage on the admin side, or 
even down to personal preference.

Yeah, this is all probably pretty trivial, and in the end it doesn't 
really matter.  I should stop obsessing and just pick something.
