It would have been upstream *before* the email went out, but my git-fu
is incredibly weak.

I've been talking to Roland about my problems with pushing upstream
(and the accidental branch I created on glibc.git).

git push -v
Pushing to git://sourceware.org/git/glibc-ports.git
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

git remote show origin
* remote origin
  URL: git://sourceware.org/git/glibc-ports.git
  HEAD branch: master
  Local branch configured for 'git pull':
    master merges with remote master
  Local ref configured for 'git push':
    master pushes to master (fast forwardable)

I don't know what's wrong here. AFAICT it should just work, I've been
using `git pull --rebase` to keep my repo updated.
