Yes, if that is how we are doing it. I see many of these branches are
mine (most of origin/feature/gbuild_*)... I apologize to leave them
hanging around.

Yes, that was the branch where Norbert killed it.

anything there yet.)

I think this branch contains Norbert's git submodule work, so it is
still valid.
