Right now all branches under /tmp are private to the OMPI core group
(e.g., to allow unpublished academic work). However, there are
definitely cases where it would be useful to allow public branches
when there's development work that is public but not yet ready for
the trunk. Periodically, we go an assign individual permissions to /
tmp branches (like I just did to /tmp/vt-integration), but it would
be easier if we had a separate tree for public "tmp" branches.
Would anyone have an objection if I added /public (or any better name
that someone can think of) for tmp-style branches, but that are open
for read-only access to the public?
