exactly; i'd be MORE than happy to see the repo on fd.o. the only reason it 
isn't is that getting an account with fd.o so you can put your clones up where 
we can all get to them in one place is far too hard. having things like merge 
requests is a wonderful bonus as well, but not a deal breaker. having a high 
barrier to entry is, however.

that said, we can in the meantime we can improve the spec process which means 
better meta-documentation for them, keeping them centralized, etc. that's far 
more important than where they are for the moment.
