Pending a final green sanity result, the tentative restructure day will 
be Sept 4 (tomorrow).

Please freeze ALL code submissions, starting at 1 pm UTC on Sept 4, 
until further notice.

I'll be running a repo split tool. It will generate more than a dozen 
code reviews that will ALL have to be merged before we can unfreeze the 
code for general updates.

After everything has merged, you'll need to ...

1) If you are working on code that has not been relocated (refer to 
spreadsheet [3]) then 'repo sync --force-sync' be sufficient.  Before 
doing that, be sure to save your work as a commit on a private working 

2) If your working on code that has been relocated,  Then your best bet 
is to start with a fresh 'repo init' into a new working directory.  Use 
'git format-patch' or 'diff' to capture your work, and apply the patch 
at the new location.   Some surgery to path names may be required.
