To me this sounds like a near term decision. IOW, the other repo is clearly
read/only at this point.

I don't think we have any contrarian opinion. I appreciated what Matthew Rocklin
had to say, but to me it sounds like his interest will be taken care
of long term.
Matt, please let us know if you disagree.

Well, see -- that's *exactly* the problem with how this project was managed.
At this point we can't even reach the interested parties in a broadcast manner.

Personally, I suggest that whoever was managing the library in a separate
repo on GH (and it sounds like Zhanwei Wang is that person) pings the
submitters of all the oustanding PRs (via comment on the PR) telling them
to resubmit via HAWQ's JIRA.

That's exactly the right thing to do. So I guess it is you and Zhanwei Wang
on the hook to do that.
