well, the reason behind having all specs in one repo is to have them all
together, so that anyone wanting to do a change can get all of them from
the same place. Right now it seems to be hard to know where the source
of the spec is, so is there any way you could continue maintaining your
spec as you do now but have the latest version always in the shared git
