this sounds like it would make it even harder to locate a DCO. if i'm
working on a specific project that is under sane revision control, and i
questions about the contributors and their status, the master branch of
the upstream repo is a natural place to look. if it goes in the
gnupg-doc repo, then i have to figure out how to find it, clone a new
repo, figure out which branch of *that* repo is relevant, etc.
If you want to keep a synced copy in the gnupg-doc repo i think that's
fine, but i'm not sure what we gain from moving it entirely to gnupg-doc
(and removing it from the master branch).
Why not just put a note in the file on all maintained branches that says
"the current version of this registry of DCOs is on the master branch"?
