While this is a bit off-topic, but still related to Pagure:

I've heard there have been plans to use Pagure to host the Fedora dist
git repos, with the aim of enabling pull requests for packages.

IIRC the idea was to make packaging improvements and fixes easier.
You would not need to pester individual maintainers via email/IRC
anymore - just fire away a pull requests like with normal pull-request
It could also possibly help ameliorate the "someone-touched-my-package" 
friction that sometimes shows up when proven packages modify other
peoples packages.

As I find this to be a very interesting idea I just wanted to ask how
this is coming along when there are Pagure People in the thread. :)
