Thanks for working on this! :)

My personal point of view based on my limited experience with git is that 
split repositories are the better approach especially in the long run, even if 
it requires some additional work now.

For Parley the cmake stuff definitely needs work as it currently doesn't build 
standalone and we need a check for libkeduvocdocument. However, I just saw you 
have also been working on this. You rock!

I have looked at the parley history and saw that the history of the two big 
branches I know about has been lost. Is is possible to add rules for them?

These are the two branches and merge commits for them:

- branches/work/parley-practice, see r1114458
- branches/work/soc-parley, see r835561

Frederik, you know the history better than I do. Can you take a look at this 
as well?
