Thanks, Matt.  Having trouble though.

First, regarding the command:
git push --force --all ssh://people.freedesktop.org/~username/repo-name

Wouldn't that push all my branches to fd.o?  I don't think I want to 
do that.

Ian also sent me some instructions but they're a little different than 
the wiki.

I think I'm all set on the fd.o side, but on my local machine I'm 
unable to push my new 'remove-mfeatures' branch.

I create a remote with:
git remote add brianp ssh://people.freedesktop.org/~brianp/mesa.git

But when I try to push my branch to it with:
git push brianp remove-mfeatures

I get a prompt for a password.  My usual password isn't accepted.  I 
have a feeling the issue is my remote login name is brianp but my 
local account is just brian.
