Look at http://git.buildroot.net/

You have a link to the official Buildroot Git tree, browsable at
http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/. This Git tree is read-only, except
for Peter.

But at the bottom of the page, you have « User repositories ». These
are read/write for their owner. For example, mine is
http://git.buildroot.net/~tpetazzoni/git/buildroot/. In my own
repository, I have a master branch which is just a clone of the main
Buildroot repository. And all the other branches (presently
directfb-bump, ext-toolchain-target-path, external-toolchain,
kconfig-update and xorg) contain my *own* work, ready for submission to
Peter. And some of this work has actually already been integrated in
mainline (branches directfb-bump, ext-toolchain-target-path and

The link
that I've already posted explains how to use these user repositories,
