We are working on this right now.  alsa.git is far currently behind my

One problem we hit is about multiple committers and rebase.  If you do
git-rebase, the commiter information is touched although the sign-off
isn't updated.  git-rebase looks apparently designed for the
single-commiter model.

Once after we sort out this issue, I'll update the whole alsa.git tree
to the latest Linus tree, and move all my stuff.  Let's see whether it
really works.

Meanwhile, I'll keep syncing my tree with alsa.git as a backup, so the
above will be working, too.
