Sounds fine to me. I've needed to refer to the SI more than once, I'd
be happy to have it in a well-known location.

Vaguely related: Old-timers may remember that DRI used to have its own
CVS repo on dri.sourceforge.net. If you want a git import of that tree,
you can find it here:


I'd be happy to move this under mesa/ too if we want.

Enh. Less sold on this, though if it's linked from the FAQ I guess it's
okay. I find that gitlab's archive makes things a little too hard to
find, I would often prefer to see archived results in searches. But
there's not really a better way to make a repo read-only, so I won't
object too strongly.
