Ok, I'll get around to it once I think about how I'm going to approach
primus' packaging (refer to that other email I sent you for details).

Well...I feel inclined to pick pkg-nvidia just so we don't have to
have a long list of people to cc: every time something related to
primus' packaging is discussed. ;)  I'll move the repository over from
collab-maint to pkg-nvidia tomorrow then.
