If you are looking for push access, we'll wait on that for a bit. I'd like
to throttle changes into the new layer by sending them to the linux-yocto
mailing list first, have some review and then we can do a pull request
and merge model.

Once the things are stable and predictable, we can work on getting merge
access for various maintainers.
