My only request is to also transfer the pcbsd-projects tree to a git 
repo. There is some important stuff in there, and that is the main 
development arena I use for new utilities so I don't have to worry about 
committing partially completed work. Also the EasyPBI directory in there 
contains all the scripts and stuff necessary to update the EasyPBI port 
in about 5 minutes.  :-)
