Setting up a repository for 6.c in my list of pieces into which to divide 
the src repository is a matter for the newlib maintainers which should not 
have any dependencies in either direction on what any other project does.  
The same applies to each of the other separate pieces I identified: the 
maintainers should decide for themselves if and when to move out of the 
src repository and what version control system to move to if so.

This is about 6.b (binutils+gdb, including sim and some gdbtk pieces but 
not cgen and not tcl, tk or itcl).
