I would prefer to not have my spec moved to a git repo out from under
me. I much prefer the work flow I have currently with CVS. SVN would
be ok, but GIT has a very different work flow, and doesn't seem to
suit the process of simple spec maintenance as well. People should not
be maintaining forks of specs in private repositories.

I think a new list would be best. It could get noisy for new specs which
are undergoing lots of changes.
