I suppose that is completely up to you.  What im more worried about is there 
being 2 parallel streams of development for DLR but from the sounds of it that 
doesn't really occur.  obviously my main effort will be packaging your releases 
which you sync anyway.

I will be able to create ebuilds (the build scripts we use) that target your 
git repositories.   Currently I have those "live" packages reinstalling (and 
doing an update) weekly on my system.  In the future it might be nice to have 
more but it will do for now.  I won't be able to get ironruby into the tree at 
least until the next release of mono as it will not build with 2.6.4 (a mono 
bug I think you guys now about).  but it does with mono trunk.

Alistair.
