why combine the two repos?

why use a URL with /cgit/ instead of plain /git/ ?

I like the idea that the repos would contain both standards and code and
test cases, that's great.

But it seems like inclusion of code and test cases could be done without
merging the two repos.

merging the repos also mixes up the history a little bit -- someone
interested in archaeology of how we got to the endpoint of a specific
standard needs to filter out edits to the other standard as well.  Not
impossible to do (i'm assuming that you're importing all the git history
From both repos), but it's a minor annoyance.

So my inclination is to keep the two standards in separate repos, but if
there's a specific reason to merge them, you should go for it.

Thanks for driving this process, Ximin.
