I've gone ahead and created https://github.com/xen-project/xen I've also
reached out to GitHub to make it an "official" mirror. I can have GitHub
setup a periodic pull from the repo (this might take some time) or we
can add a post-receive hook that pushes to that repo.(git push --mirror)

I've also reached out to Lars off list to turn over the 'xen-project'
organization over to him.

As an aside I know we've got osstest but I've like to utilize the free
service from Travis CI to run simple compile tests on each commit. This
could potentially be wired into osstest as well. (In my organization we
use Travis CI for simple tests on commits and when those pass we kick
off our more in depth tests).
