yes; my fear of clones is that we'll end up with a dozen different clones with 
various branches in them and it'll be painful to keep track of them all as 
people come and go.

unless someone has a good way of tracking a growing and shrinking set of 
personal clones of the main repo?

i would like to see us eventually have a team clone that we can all put our 
topic branches in (with master on the clone becoming our always-open-for-
business integration branch), but right now team clones are not supported. 
what i have been told is possible is this: one of us creates a personal clone, 
and then we can all push and pull from that as if it were a team clone since 
there aren't any clone/push/pull restrictions on personal clones by default.

i just didn't want to make this more complex than necessary by introducing 
another wrinkle in it all. unless we're all comfortable with it and we want to 
do this right away?

personally i'd like to wait until we have the kdelibs workflow irc meeting and 
then make some decisive moves. in the meantime we can at least practice using 
topic branches together.

me too; still figuring this stuff out.
