It does not even represent the full set of possibility: having a *separate* "integration repository" is what *I* think would be better. Some people proposed submodules in the llvm repo to track the subprojects, with a possible auto-update on push to the other repos. In this case there is no "super project" or separate repo.
I'm not trying to force a design on anyone here.
